A suspect police arrested Wednesday morning for stealing a car, probation violations and several outstanding warrants has not yet reached his 18th birthday.
A Beaumont police spokesperson said an officer spotted a stolen car around 1 a.m. near the corner of Eastex and Lucas. The driver refused to pull over. A short chase began, ending when the driver crashed near 11th Street at Delaware in Beaumont. The teen didn’t give up quite yet. He led officers on a foot chase, but was not able to outrun them.
Police have not released the suspect’s name because of his age. He was taken to the Minnie Rogers Juvenile Detention Center.
