A driver in a Smart Car made a not-so-smart move when he led Houston police on a high speed chase. This toy … I mean car … reached a top speed of 92 MPH on the Interstate 10.

Bet this driver isn’t feeling so smart now — according to Jalopnik — he apparently drove back to his house and casually got out of his car.

Several officers arrested David Wheaton, the driver, on spot without incident.

We’re sure this is the most adventurous thing we’ve ever heard a Smart Car doing! And we just can’t get over the picture! It looks like Mama Car and Baby Car.

But hey, smart car owners everywhere must now be very proud…

We think Texas police must have shared a laugh at some point. How could you not?

Check out the chase below:

When I was this old, I think I was still playing with G.I. Joes!

I KNOW that I wasn’t thinking about stealing cars — or even driving cars!!!!

An ABC News video captured an 11-year-old jacking a “bait” car in a bait car sting by police in Albuquerque, N.M.

After climbing in and somehow starting the engine — the 11-year-old bandito then has a little fun: taking the vehicle out for a little ridiculous underage joyride. The way-too-young car thief even stops to pick up some friends — who are all 10 years old!!!!

“Come on guys! Jump in.”

Holy ba-geezal — it’s too much to even believe.

When fiddling with the radio, one of the kids thinks that he spots a police officer — and alerts the other to “look out!” The video shows the group slouching down to avoid being seen.

Watch the whole crazy video here.

And tell your kids not to steal cars!!!!

A woman accused of drunkenly driving her car into a golf course sand trap told cops that her GPS device told her to do it.

Police say that it was more likely … the half liter of vodka that she admitted to drinking at around 10 a.m. that day — or maybe the large Burger King cup containing an alcoholic beverage that officers say was found in her car.

After the sandy stunt, officer Randy Lloyd said Patricia Maione, 46, told him her that her car’s GPS device had told her to “turn left,” according to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.

Lloyd wrote in his report: “She stated that this left brought her into a ‘cornfield’ and once she was in the ‘cornfield’ she kept driving trying to get out of her ‘cornfield,’”

The officer added: “Ms. Maione stated that she did not even like golf.”

The police report says Maione failed an on-scene field sobriety test — she’s been charged with driving with a suspended license, fourth-degree drunken driving, negligent driving — aaaaaaand driving with an open container of alcohol in the car.

Don’t blame the GPS device!!!!

There’s nothing like a bank robber bust … with a GPS unit playing a key role.

New York cops Thursday charged two cousins with robbing a bank in Yonkers (and police claim the twosome are responsible for over a half-dozen more bank heists nearby)!

The alleged bank boosters weapon of choice?

The fearsome … pellet gun.

What led Gotham’s constabulary to the alleged criminal cousins?

Apparently a GPS device located in the Mercedes-Benz driven by one of the suspects — a unit sought by area police for some time, cops said.
