CLINTON, N.C. (AP) - Police in North Carolina have filed charges against a 13-year-old who they say led officers on a car chase at speeds in excess of 100 mph.

The Sampson Independent reports Clinton police saw a car speeding on Sept. 6. Officers stopped the car and identified the driver as a local teenager.

While speaking with the teen, officers detected the odor of alcohol on his breath. The teen admitted to drinking, and he submitted to a breath sample, which a police report said tested positive for alcohol. During the stop, officers were notified that the boy’s parents had reported the car stolen.
