Police in India have arrested a man who allowed his 9-year-old son to drive his Ferrari, while his wife videotaped the event. The video (below) went viral almost immediately after it was posted to YouTube.

Mohammed Nisham was arrested for endangering the life of a child, and allowing a minor to drive. He was released after posting 5,000 rupees bail, equivalent to about $92.

Nisham, who owns a thriving tobacco and real estate business, is considered part of India's super-rich class, and owns 18 cars with an estimated value of $4 million.

The boy's parents were unfazed.

"I am proud of him. He's been driving since he was 5," the boy's mother said. "It was his 9th birthday, and since he was insisting for months, we allowed him to drive the Ferrari. He is a cautious and confident driver."
