A juvenile is being held at the Juvenile Detention Center after taking a family member’s vehicle for a joyride that ended with a pursuit.

On November 10th at approximately 11:36 p.m. Deputy D.S. Jett was traveling on Cambridge Street when he observed a vehicle traveling 63 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. Deputy Jett turned on his emergency equipment and almost immediately after, the suspect vehicle began to accelerate.

Like a Fast & Furious scene, the suspect vehicle drifted as it turned onto Warrenton Road continuing to gain speed. The vehicle would reach speeds above 100 before losing control. The vehicle ran off the roadway, struck an embankment making it airborne, before stopping on Hornets Nest Lane when it collided with a power pole. The pursuit was nearly two miles long.

The juvenile driver was detained and miraculously sustained no injuries. The juvenile driver advised she had taken a family member’s vehicle without permission to get ice cream and she ran due to her not having a driver’s license. Criminal complaints for felony eluding, reckless driving, and driving without a license were obtained. She was subsequently held at the Juvenile Detention Center.
