13-year-old girl takes Pa. cops on 100 mph chase

Editor's note: There’s been continued discussion relative to the wisdom of pursuing small traffic infractions, particularly if the driver decides to run. Something to keep in mind is that, as pointed out in Tactics for Criminal Patrol by Chuck Remsberg, seemingly trivial traffic infractions can sometimes result in major busts. Read some examples that Remsberg shares in Small infractions can make for bigger busts.

LEBANON, Pa. — Police say a 13-year-old girl led state troopers on a nine-mile chase in central Pennsylvania at speeds of more than 100 mph.

Authorities say the pursuit started around 9:30 a.m. Monday when troopers saw a driver weaving in and out of her lane on Interstate 81 in Swatara Township.

Police say the driver wouldn't stop when they tried to pull her over.

The pursuit continued onto Interstate 78. Police say the girl finally stopped the 1994 Pontiac Grand Am on an off-ramp near Fredericksburg.

Troopers say the girl was taken into custody and charged with several violations. Her name was not released, and police could not immediately offer more details of the case, including where she got the car.
