12 year old Oklahoma City boy leads police on chase

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A driver who led sheriff's deputies on a 25-minute chase, reaching speeds of 100 mph, turned out to be a 12-year-old boy behind the wheel of his mother's car, authorities said.

The chase, which began about 1 p.m. Monday, ended near Lake Thunderbird after stop sticks punctured the car's tires.

The chase went through parts of Pottawatomie, Oklahoma and Cleveland counties.

"More than half the time he was driving, there were two tires off the roadway," said Oklahoma County sheriff's spokeswoman Rochelle Thompson.

"Every moment, they felt this suspect was going to wreck or lose control of the vehicle. He is very fortunate that he did not lose his life or cause the death of someone else."

The boy was taken to the Oklahoma County Juvenile Center.
