WATCH VIDEO: Driver Stopped For Youthful Appearance In Pender County

A 15-year-old here in North Carolina was pulled over by multiple patrol cars aided by a helicopter - all because of the way he looks.

Deputies received multiple calls about a driver who was "no more than 10" years old. This driver was 15-year-old Christopher Anderson of Pender County. He got his permit only days before this incident.

Drivers' education instructors expressed concern for Anderson. Instructors said that nerves and mistakes are part of the learning experience for all new drivers. They worry about how Anderson might be affected by this experience.

"I don't know if he'll ever feel safe about driving again, though, you know? That's enough to scare anyone," drivers' education instructor Marylin said.

NBC affiliate WMBF in South Carolina reported that Christopher said it will take time to be comfortable driving again. but it won't keep him off the road. He will turn 16 in August
