Police: 11-year-old boy leads officers on high-speed chase
BROOKLYN, Ohio (AP, KTVU) - Police say an 11-year-old boy in Ohio led officers on his second high-speed police chase in 13 months, this time it happened after his mother took away a video game console.
Police in suburban Cleveland say the boy took off in his mother's SUV around 10:30 p.m. Sunday after she went to bed.
According to police reports, officers began chasing the boy as he sped down a road the wrong way, running stop lights and reaching speeds of 70 to 90 mph.
The chase ended about 30 minutes later when the boy crashed into a parked truck.
Police say the child told them he crashed because he wasn't paying attention to the road.
He was treated for minor injuries and taken to a juvenile detention center.
Investigators say the boy will face felony charges in juvenile court.
They say the last time he had a run-in with police was about a year ago when he led them and the State Highway Patrol on a 100-mph chase. No one was injured in that chase.
