10 Year Old Leads State Troopers on 100 mph Car Chase

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The 10-year-old boy who stole a car belonging to his mother's boyfriend before school and led police and state troopers on a 45-mile high-speed chase that topped 100 mph was blocked in by troopers after he drove into a ditch to avoid spike strips.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol dash camera video of the chase and the boy's arrest shows the boy driving on the opposite side of a metal barrier on the side of the Ohio Turnpike in Milan, successfully avoiding the spike strips and delaying the trailing police cruisers.

But the troopers caught up and boxed him in, and one cruiser struck the back driver's side of the car, causing him to turn sharply toward the highway, where he hit another cruiser, ending the wild chase.

Troopers pulled the boy out of the car through the window. He kicked at the troopers and spit on them off camera, according to state patrol Lt. Richard Reeder said.

The boy was led to the back of one of the cruisers in handcuffs. His face showed no emotion.
