Kootenai County deputies arrested a 13-year-old suspected of driving faster than 100 mph during a chase Monday morning near Athol.
Deputies say the driver, who had a 15-year-old passenger along, sped the SUV through a stop sign on state Highway 54 at about 1 a.m., then continued on the highway at high speeds as deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, according to a department news release.
As the pair made their way to Athol, deputies say they drove through a stop sign at Good Hope Road and Parks Road at over 90 mph.
The driver finally stopped, the news release says, when a parent called one of them and “told them to stop for the police.”
The 13-year-old was arrested and booked into the Kootenai County Juvenile Detention Facility and likely faces a charge of felony eluding police and reckless driving.
