PARIS, Ill. (FTN) – Two Terre Haute parents say they are worried their three-year-old is out of control after he was busted riding on the hood of a Power Wheels over the weekend.
The incident happened over the weekend at Alex Essex’s grandmother’s house in Paris, Illinois.
Alex’s mom, Ami, told FTN she looked on with fear as her son sat on the hood of the Jeep style vehicle and drove around the yard.
“I don’t know where I went wrong. I just…maybe I need to call Dr. Phil?” Ami said.
Alex reportedly was not injured in the incident.
FTN reached out to Chris for comment, initially, he refused to say anything expect he was shocked.
Later, Chris admitted to FTN he was controlling the Power Wheels with a remote control device.
“He is out of control. I agree. But I enable it. I’m proud of promoting that daredevil life style,” Chris said.
He said if he had the chance, he would like let his son do it again.
