Hong Kong police briefly detained a 10-year-old American boy who took his father's Maserati GranTurismo coupe out for a spin.



The boy grabbed the keys from an unlocked drawer in the family's apartment near central Hong Kong, revved the engine and drove off in the two-door car on Monday, the South China Morning Post said.

He hit a vehicle in the car park but continued driving the car - for which his businessman father paid HK$1.6 million ($200,320) in 2009 - for another 300 metres down a busy road before he stopped and a passer-by called the police.

"Police arrested the 10-year-old for driving without a licence and taking a conveyance without authority under the theft ordinance," a police spokeswoman said, adding that the boy has been released on police bail.

The boy is required to report back to the police station later this month.
