According to CNN the boy was released without charge after he and his guardian signed a pledge “that the teen will not engage in behavior that could endanger his life and the life of others again,” an Interior Ministry spokesman said in a statement sent to CNN on Wednesday. “The notification was solely intended to warn the boy about potential consequences for his own safety, as well as to safeguard the overall safety of motorists and pedestrians,” the spokesman added. According to the Saudi Okaz newspaper, preliminary information indicates that the boy “was showing off” and that the stunt was part of a dare with his peers.
