NEW DELHI (April 29, 20213)--Charges have been filed against a man in southern India who allowed his 9-year-old son to drive his Ferrari, police said.
Police say Mohammed Nisham has been charged with endangering the life of a child and allowing a minor to drive.
Nisham's wife shot video of the boy driving the sports car on his ninth birthday two weeks ago, with his 5-year-old brother in the passenger seat.
The video went viral on YouTube and caused an outrage across India, leading to the charges.
India's economic boom has created a class of super-rich, whose excesses are frequently in the news.
The boy has also driven the family's Lamborghini and Bentley.
His mother said she's "proud of him.
He's been driving since he was 5."
