FULSHEAR, Texas, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- A Texas police department shared a photo of a booster seat allegedly used by a 12-year-old boy to seem older when he took a car for a joyride.

Fulshear Police said in a Facebook post an officer spotted the young driver Oct. 8 and pulled him over before he had traveled very far.

Police said the car belonged to a friend's mother and the boy used the booster seat "to appear older" while behind the wheel.

"If he had only added a fake mustache to go with the booster seat, we may have not noticed," police joked in the Facebook post.

Police said "no one was hurt" during the boy's joyride, but the incident was "scary just the same."

It was unclear whether the boy was arrested or whether he will face charges stemming from the incident.
