MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A 9-year-old boy who eluded security at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and flew to Las Vegas is the subject of a child protection hearing.
Hennepin County officials have filed a petition saying the boy is in need of protection or county services. A hearing on the petition is scheduled Wednesday.
The petition says the child has serious behavioral issues. He's also stolen a delivery truck, been suspended from school and repeatedly runs away from home.
The boy's father says he and the child's mother have tried to get their son help, but officials told him they couldn't intervene because the boy hadn't done anything bad enough. The child gained attention Oct. 3 when he got by security at the airport and wound up in Las Vegas.
