CLEVELAND — Authorities in Cleveland say a 16-year-old boy stole a public bus from a maintenance facility and apparently drove at least five miles before being spotted and arrested.

A transit spokeswoman says it would've been complicated to start the bus because it uses a series of buttons, not keys.

She says the teen was behind the wheel when a transit supervisor later spotted the parked bus, which had a cracked window and a smashed mirror.
