VIDEO: Dashcam shows police chase ending in arrest of 16-year-old driver

PONTIAC, Mich. – Dashcam video was released of a police chase in Pontiac on Saturday that ended in the arrest of a 16-year-old driver and a 19-year-old man wanted on a felony murder warrant, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies saw a gray Jeep Grand Cherokee in the parking lot of a gas station that was reported stolen from Lake Orion. One of the occupants got out of the vehicle and was known to have a valid felony warrant stemming from a recent shooting.

The vehicle fled the gas station as the deputies approached and a pursuit was initiated. Additional deputies took the suspect with the felony warrant into custody at the gas station.

While in pursuit, the Jeep sideswiped a vehicle on Walton Boulevard and then left the roadway, striking a tree in the parking lot of a business.

The 16-year-old driver was taken into custody and two semi-automatic pistols, ammunition, and several spent shell casings were allegedly found inside the vehicle.

There were no injuries reported.

The 16-year-old driver, of Pontiac, is being lodged at Oakland County Children’s Village.

The 19-year-old man, also a resident of Pontiac, wanted on an outstanding felony warrant for attempted murder, is being lodged at the Oakland County Jail.
