GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- The N.C. Highway Patrol says a 16-year-old is facing multiple charges after taking his stepfather's SUV and leading officers on a chase.
Troopers said 16-year-old Steven Rollins got into an argument with his stepfather before school on Tuesday and left the home in the man's SUV. Trooper J.M. Bullard said speeds topped 100 miles per hour as officers chased the SUV.
Investigators said the teen sped through two stop signs, nearly hit a car and a truck and then tried to make a right turn at 80 miles per hour. According to investigators, the driver lost control of the SUV, which crashed through an abandoned house and landed on top of a tree stump.
Rollins is facing charges including felony fleeing to elude arrest, simple assault and reckless driving.
