The teenager, from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, who was dubbed 'the boy they can't lock up', allegedly crashed a car while on the run from an assessment centre. The town's magistrates decided to remand him at the unit for 28 days.
After the case his father said: 'Boys like him need to be in a special school that will put them straight. He has been handled all wrong since being put in care. After the hearing I went up and thanked the magistrate. I told her she had taken a lot of worries off my mind.'
The boy is due in court again tomorrow in connection with various offences.
