A 16-year-old was arrested after a police chase through the Center Grove area early Monday morning.
Police arrested the teen on charges of resisting law enforcement in a motor vehicle and criminal mischief after chasing his car about 2 miles. He was taken to the Johnson County Juvenile Detention Center.
A Johnson County sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop the vehicle near the intersection of Morgantown and Smith Valley roads at 12:38 a.m. The driver didn’t stop, was speeding and drove through a red light, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office police report.
The driver sped through a neighborhood in the Center Grove area, and headed south on Runyon Road before entering the Hunters Pointe subdivision. The vehicle struck a median on Berry Road and lost a wheel before coming to a stop. Police arrested the driver, who said he didn’t stop because he did not have a driver’s license, the report said.
Another teenager got out of the passenger side of the vehicle and ran once the car stopped. Police were unable to find the passenger.
