The Quincy Police Department posted to Facebook a recording of a 911 call the boy placed to report his father had run a red light.

The boy tells a dispatcher: "Daddy went through a red light." He then describes the vehicle and says it was "in the brand-new car, my mummy's car."

He did not identify himself.

When the dispatcher asks the boy what happened next, he says they went to the car wash.

Without missing a beat, the dispatcher asks to speak to the boy's father, who gets on the line and says, "Oh, no."

The dad then apologises for the boy's call.

The dispatcher and the dad share a laugh before the dispatcher lets the dad off the hook.
