A 14-year-old boy from Northern California led police on a high speed chase through the streets of Santa Rosa early on Friday morning.

The hot tail pursuit which lasted for 16 minutes saw the teenager reaching speeds of up to 100mph in a stolen car, travelling for more than 14 miles.

Police first noticed the suspects car just before 2am driving in downtown Cotati, with its headlights off.

After a sergeant attempted to stop the car, the driver sped off, police said.

Incredibly, despite the high speeds the teenager managed to avoid injuring anyone, although he sideswiped a car that was pulling over to get out of the way of the chase.

When the driver attempted to drive over the center median at Highway 101, two of the car’s ties blew out, bringing the pursuit to a stop.

The driver's two passengers, aged 14 and 15, were arrested.

When police tracked the car’s registration, they discovered it had been stolen just hours earlier.

The driver was found to have ten warrants out for his arrest, although it is unclear for what crimes.

The driver was booked on suspicion of felony evading, felony possession of a stolen vehicle and the outstanding warrants that had been previously issued.

Driving with his headlights out in a stolen car? He was probably going to burglarize a business.

I agree. Broken leg would slow him down. Two broken arms would inhibit his driving. Beating his ass would be good for his soul.
