11-year-old leads police on high-speed chase


An 11-year-old boy led Cleveland Police on a high speed chase, after taking his mom’s car Sunday night, but it wasn’t the first time.

The driver, running red lights and shutting his off, while speeding through town.

Cops say the boy, who was no longer being chased, wasn’t paying attention and slammed into a parked pickup in Cleveland about 20 minutes later. The 11 year old, treated, then released from the hospital. That’s when investigators got another surprise.

The boy’s parents say he’s the same kid who lead troopers on this 50-mile chase along the turnpike last october. Just days after taking his mom’s car and leaving it with flat tires on i-90.

That time, his dad said his son did it thinking it was a joke and that nothing would happen to him. His mom told investigators he was charged for taking the car.

But the case was dropped after the boy wasn’t competent to stand trial.

Police say that this time around, the boy will face felony charges in juvenile court.
