KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – A 14-year-old spent the night in juvenile detention after police say he led them on a chase from Montgomery County to Greene County and back.

It started in Moraine around 1:15 Thursday morning, when police say the teen pulled into a parking lot on Springboro Pike, where a police officer happened to be. When the teen noticed the officer, police say he took off onto I-75.

The officer followed him into Dayton, then started the pursuit as the teen got back onto I-75 south. Police say Miami Township officers joined the pursuit and put out stop sticks on Ohio 725 in an attempt to stop him.

Eventually the teen turned onto Wilmington Pike, where Kettering police used a technique known as P.I.T. That stands for Precision Immobilization Technique. A Kettering officer bumped the back of the teen’s car with his cruiser, causing the teen’s car to spin out.

Once stopped, police say the teen refused to get out of the car, so officers broke the window and pulled him out.

Police say the teen did not reach excessive speeds during the chase. They believe the car he was driving belongs to a family member.

The teen is now facing a number of traffic violations.
