PINE LAWN, Mo. (AP) - Police say they’ve captured a Pine Lawn teenager who pointed a pistol at an officer during a traffic stop and then fled.

Pine Lawn Police Lt. Steven Blakeney tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1tWkKrO ) that the officer stopped the 17-year-old’s car Monday morning because its headlights were off. He says the teen and another man pointed pistols at the officer and ran away. A third man also fled the vehicle.

The officer says the driver lost both of his shoes before running into the woods. The teen surrendered to a St. Ann officer with a police dog.

The teen was charged with unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action and resisting arrest. It’s unclear if the passengers were arrested.

The Associated Press typically doesn’t identify minors charged with crimes.
