CLEVELAND — An 11-year-old Ohio boy accused of leading police on two separate high-speed chases in a year has been placed on house arrest.
Cleveland.com reports the Ohio boy denied charges of grand theft, criminal damaging and failing to comply with a police order on Wednesday in Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court. He’s has a court appearance in December.
Police in the Cleveland suburb of Brooklyn said the boy sped off in his mother’s SUV on Nov. 4 after she took away his video game console. He reached speeds of 70 to 90 mph as officers gave chase.
The pursuit ended about 30 minutes later when the boy crashed into a parked truck and sustained minor injuries.
Authorities say he led police on a 100-mph chase last fall. No one was injured.
