A Utah Highway Patrol trooper got a pint-sized surprise when he pulled over a 5-year-old driver who was swerving so badly he thought the driver needed medical attention.

Trooper Rick Morgan said Adrian Zamarripa, who turns 6 next month, did not respond to his lights but pulled over when he hit his siren on Interstate 15 in Ogden on Monday.

“I approached the vehicle and I was expecting to find somebody who needed an ambulance or paramedics," Morgan said.

But when the window came down Morgan said it was pretty clear that it was a very under-aged driver who was behind the wheel.

The trooper said the boy was sitting on the edge of his seat to reach the brake pedal.

When asked, Morgan said Adrian told him he was going to his sister’s house in California.

The boy told another trooper that he wanted to buy a Lamborghini when he got there and flashed open his wallet showing his cash to purchase his dream car.

He had all of $3.

Adrian’s parents were contacted and they came and took custody of their son and the vehicle.

His sister Sidney Estrada said he has long dreamed of owning his own Lamborghini and spends hours watching videos of the luxury sports cars racing.

On Tuesday, a local Lamborghini owner treated Adrian to rides up and down the street, with the boy in the passenger seat.
