(Chisago County Sheriff)

RUSH CITY, Minn. (WTHR) — A toddler in Minnesota had his driving privileges revoked after going on a joyride.

Chisago County Sheriff's sergeant Jason Foster tells KARE 11, the 2-and-a-half year old wanted to go back to the county fair.

So, the little boy hopped on his battery powered John Deere tractor and took off.

Dispatchers got a call about the missing by and a deputy at the fair found the toddler just minutes later.

His home was only about a block away from the fair and the little boy could see the rides from his house. So he drove his little John Deere down the sidewalk and through a back gate at the fair and through the crowd and to his favorite ride, The Tilt-a-Whirl.

That where the deputy found him and when dad got there, he removed the battery from the boy's tractor.
