This feels like a page right out of Ferris Bueller’s playbook!
An El Paso, Texas teen is grounded after his mom caught him taking her new BMW for a joyride.
Thanks to his sister — the whole scene was recorded and posted to social media.
“Pull over now!” yells Liza Martinez in a video posted to social media.
It’s a moment that will live forever, but was a scary one for this mom.
“It’s my son’s well being, his livelihood, his best friend’s well being, not to mention all of the people on the roadways,” said Liza Martinez.
Liza Martinez says it all started last week when she was at work. She says her youngest, 14-year-old Aaron called to tell her the internet at home was out.
“As soon as he said that, literally, I got a message instantly that my WiFi was down,” said Martinez.
She says she felt like something wasn’t adding up.
“At that point, it blocks out my cameras, my home security,” said Martinez. “I don’t see when the doors are being opened or closed.”
Then another parent told Martinez that Aaron had gone to a friend’s house to pick him up.
“I immediately called my daughter who lives next door to me, and I told her to go outside and see if my car is there and she said, ‘it’s not there,'” said Martinez.
“That’s when she told me to grab the belt and I really just ran into the closet and grabbed the first belt I saw,” said Liza Camper, Liza Martinez’s daughter.
Aaron is grounded until his mom feels he’s learned his lesson.
That’s when this viral thread started.
“Honestly, I post about my brothers all of the time, because they’re always in trouble, it just kept going and it was getting funnier,” said Camper.
It didn’t take long for Martinez to catch up to her son.
“I pulled right out into traffic next to him. He was in one lane, I was in the lane next to him,” said Martinez. “That’s when I yelled at him to pull over. Now.”
The video was posted onto social media, which has gained more than 12,000 retweets and nearly 30 thousand likes on Twitter within days.
Martinez says she’s not sure how to handle her newfound fame especially since she didn’t know the experience was being documented.
“I had no clue.”
Regardless of the video she says she wants what’s best for her kids.
“I feel that I have a debt to society and my debt to society is to make sure my children are productive, law-abiding citizens,” said Martinez.
Needless to say, Aaron is spending a lot of time at home with his mother learning from his mistake.
