This is what I found on WashingtonPost:

Last week, 5-year-old Adrian Zamarripa took $3 out of his piggy bank, stole the keys to his parents’ SUV in Ogden, Utah, and went for a joyride on the freeway, following the signs that pointed south to Los Angeles.
When the kindergartner was pulled over on Interstate 15 after driving about three miles at 32 mph, he told the shocked highway patrol officer that he was on his way to California to buy a Lamborghini sports car.
That afternoon, when news spread online about Adrian’s dangerous adventure, his parents and sister were lambasted on social media by outraged people who thought they should have been paying more attention. Adrian’s 16-year-old sister, Sidney Flores, who was babysitting, had taken a nap about 11 a.m. while her mom and stepfather were away at work, and that’s when her little brother decided to take the keys from a hook near the door and go after his dream.

Jeremy Neves, 33, decided to do something positive, trying to turn the frightening experience around.

The entrepreneur and philanthropist from Orem, Utah reached out to the family and offered to take the boy for a ride in his car: a matte black Lamborghini.

A local reporter, Mike Anderson, tweeted about what happened.

“After driving his family car down I-15, with the intent to drive to California and buy a Lamborghini, 5 year-old Adrian Zamarripa got a hefty scolding. He also got the ride of his life, the day after,” Anderson tweeted.


Anderson also addressed the negative feedback about the incident:

“Older sister was in tears when I arrived. No one expected a 5 year-old to grab the keys and take off like that. Why would they? It’s a crazy. The family did tell me they were and are taking disciplinary measures. I don’t know those details. That’s their business.

“Valid points have been made. I truly hope these events do not reinforce negative behavior, but whether that happens is up to the parents now; not me or you. I don’t expect to change any opinions here, just to add a bit of perspective. Thanks.

“After the barrage of negative comments about this story, I’m gonna’ try and address what I saw, being there in person. It will take four tweets. The kid’s parents had just been through the scare of their lives, and were getting torn apart over social media for it.

“Taking what happened & the negative response into account, Jeremy Neves, a Lamborghini owner, and successful business owner, wanted to try and turn a negative into a positive, and ideally encourage the kid to chase his dreams. The family was grateful and in tears at the gesture.”
