CASEVILLE, Mich. (AP) — A 7-year-old Michigan boy who drove a car at high speeds for 20 miles has been charged with unlawful use of a vehicle.

Huron County Prosecutor Tim Rutkowski said Wednesday he will not seek to remove the boy from his home. He says he filed the juvenile charge to get the boy and his family some assistance, such as counseling.

Rutkowski says it's "strictly" to help the boy.

The boy told authorities that he drove off in his stepfather's car Monday to see his father, who also lives in Huron County, 110 miles north of Detroit. Still in his pajamas, the boy reached speeds of 50 to 60 mph before police boxed him in and he stopped the car on a rural road.

He was not hurt.
