Charges have been filed against a man who allowed his 9-year-old son to drive his Ferrari.


According to the Associated Press, Mohammed Nisham was charged with endangering the life of a child and allowing a minor to drive.

Nisham's wife filmed the boy driving the sports car on his ninth birthday two weeks ago, with his 7-year-old brother in the passenger seat. The video went viral on YouTube and caused an outrage across India.

The boy's father, who has a thriving tobacco and real estate business, owns a stable of 18 cars worth an estimated $4 million.

The boy's parents are unabashed.

"I am proud of him. He's been driving since he was 5," said his mother, Amal Nisham, to the television channel NDTV.  "It's not easy for a child to achieve such a feat at this young age."
