WAUWATOSA, Wis., June 15 (UPI) -- Wisconsin authorities said they arrested a 14-year-old boy who had been suspended from school and allegedly took a school bus for a joyride.

Wauwatosa police said the Milwaukee teen, who was suspended from school June 8 for reasons not released by authorities, allegedly drove the school bus away as the driver helped a special needs student to his front door, WauwatosaNow.com reported Tuesday.

Police said the bus was parked at the boy's grandmother's house for a few hours and then driven to Mayfair Mall where the boy was spotted by a woman whose father drives for Lakeside Buses of Wisconsin, which owned the vehicle.

The woman confronted the boy and he was prevented from leaving the parking lot by police. He told officers he "had no intention of shopping, but wanted to be seen by others driving the bus through the lot," the police report said.

The boy was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft and taken to the Milwaukee County Juvenile Detention Center.
