VIDEO: Ohio Cops Chase Boy Through 4 Counties

Ohio police say a 12-year-old stole three vehicles and led officers on a chase through four counties that reached speeds of 70 mph until Stop Sticks halted the pursuit on Tuesday.

The boy was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon after leading a Tuscarawas County Sheriff's deputy and Sugarcreek Police Chief Kevin Kaser on a 20-minute pursuit covering about 15 miles in a stolen 1997 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. Earlier, he stole his parents' Chevrolet van and a 1999 Ford extended cab pickup truck in Wayne County, reports the New Philadelphia Times Reporter.

The boy will be charged with juvenile delinquency by reason of theft of a motor vehicle and fleeing and eluding, both felonies.

So many of these young kids do not realize the snowball they are starting into a lifetime of bad choices and a life of crime. I hate to see a juvie get a felony, but when they deserve it they should be charged. Wish there was some more background on the family life, and previous acts of the boy. What led him to these choices, payback to parents, acting out of sibling rivalry, gangs, etc? Are the parents involved in his life? Could you help out with more info Police Magazine? What a legal nightmare, and talk about stress in a time that we do not need any more on our plates.

This is because everyone wants to tell "little johnny" that he is a bad boy. Instead little johnny needs his ass beat. To much touchy BS today with parents, teachers and the media on disciplining your children. A good old ass whipping is what the kids need and they will stay out of trouble in most cases. But, we treat big boys the same way and thats why I jails are full........No respect or consequences for their actions.
