Wednesday morning, an unfortunate 12-year old woke up an hour late for school, according to a report filed by officers with the Minneapolis Police Department.
Bravely, he started out for Anthony Middle School. By the time he reached the intersection of 48th and Nicollet, though, it was already 10:30 a.m.—an hour passed Anthony's start time. That's when officers patrolling Tangletown spotted him.
Police pulled over to question the boy, as he "appeared to be a juvenile," according to the police report's legalese. On finding out that he was late for school, they gave him a ride to Anthony and released the boy to school staff.
To top it all off, the boy seems to have escaped being cited for truancy.
