Three teens taken into custody following 100 mile per hour high-speed chase
MIDWEST CITY, Okla. – A high speed chase ended with three teenagers in police custody on Wednesday morning.
Officials say it all began when an officer attempted to perform a traffic stop in Choctaw, but the driver refused to pull over.
Instead, Choctaw police say the drive drove in reverse and hit the front of the police cruiser.
The driver then allegedly led police on a chase where speeds reached over 100 miles per hour.
Multiple agencies were involved in the chase that spanned from Choctaw to Midwest City.
Eventually, the chase came to an end when an officer performed a PIT maneuver.
Authorities say the driver was found to be a 14-year-old boy and two passengers were also found to be teenagers.
The passengers were cited for curfew violations and released to their parents. The 14-year-old driver was arrested on complaints of assault with a deadly weapon, felony eluding and operating a motor vehicle without being licensed.
