LaPorte boy takes auto for joyride

LaPorte boy takes auto for joyride”

The driver pulled into the street without stopping to check for oncoming traffic, then began weaving down the road at 15 miles per hour, said Capt. Bill Degnegaard of the LaPorte Police Department.

At around 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, an officer saw a vehicle pull onto Lincolnway in LaPorte without looking to see if there was oncoming traffic. The auto pulled onto Lincolnway without stopping to see if there was any oncoming traffic.

The officer began following the vehicle and noticed it was reportedly weaving in and out of both eastbound lanes at 15 miles per hour.

Authorities then said the pursuit went on for a mile as the driver got up to 40 miles per hour once police activated lights and sirens.

He was then joined in the pursuit by another officer, Matthew Drangmeister.

The Rio then fishtailed on a state highway before spinning out and crashing into metal fence outside of a business. Officers pinned the vehicle in with their patrol cars, but were confused when they saw the uninjured driver scramble into the car's back seat to hide.

The boy was transported to the police station and allowed to go home with his mother. Investigators said the boy apparently took off with the auto after he was left alone inside the vehicle by his mother's boyfriend with the keys still in the ignition, police said.
