CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) - An Indianapolis 14-year-old has been taken into custody after police say he led them on a chase early Tuesday morning.
Officials say just after 6:10 a.m. Tuesday, police were pursuing a suspected stolen vehicle in a neighborhood near 126th Street and Guilford Road.
Carmel Police Lt. Jeff Horner said the suspect attempted to exit the vehicle, while it was still moving. During the attempt, he was run over by the vehicle on Sleepy Hollow Lane near Wilson Drive.
Police set up a perimeter and the car continued to roll and ended up on its side. The driver led police on a short foot pursuit but was caught by a police dog who tracked him to a fence.
He was arrested on preliminary charges of vehicle theft and resisting law enforcement.
Horner says the suspect was taken to IU Health North Hospital to be treated for injuries. Horner says his injuries are not serious.
