This kid is going to be a handful growing up. A 6-year-old Alaskan boy climbed on top of his parent’s minivan and held on for three miles as it drove down the highway before he fell off.

Apparently, this wasn’t his first rodeo. Alaska State Troopers say the boy has gone on roof rides before, hanging on to the luggage rack bars mounted to the top of his parents’ minivan, according to Huffington Post.

The boy confessed to climbing on top of the vehicle on Sunday as it left his home. He lost his hold after 3 miles and fell off as the driver continued up the highway. The boy only suffered a few cuts and bruises. Another car stopped and picked the boy up and took him to a gas station to call 911.

Troopers say no one has been charged with a traffic violation or crime.
