ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - A teenage boy who allegedly led Atlantic City police on a chase while driving a stolen vehicle is now facing numerous charges.

The chase started around 12:50 p.m. Friday when officers spotted the vehicle, which had been reported stolen earlier in the day. But when they tried to stop the car, the 16-year-old Ventnor boy allegedly refused to pull over.

The ensuing pursuit eventually ended on a dirt road. Authorities say the driver ignored repeated commands to exit the vehicle and then put it in reverse in attempt to escape. But he then abruptly stopped the car and surrendered to police.

The teen faces numerous charges, including eluding and receiving stolen property. His name has not been released.
