JACKSON CO. - A 14-year-old boy leads police on a chase that ends with police having to blow-out the car's tires.

At about 6 o'clock Monday night, an Albion police officer spotted a car that had been reported stolen in Jackson County. The officer attempted to stop the car, but the teenage driver kept on going and drove onto I-94. Police report the chase reached 90mph.

A Jackson County Sheriff's Office deputy laid stop-sticks down on the highway near the M-60 exit. The car was stopped and the 14-year-old taken into custody. No one was hurt and no other cars were damaged.

The car the child had stolen belonged to his parents and Albion police say that this child has stolen his parents' car at least two other times.

The boy was released to his parents custody. The Calhoun County prosecutor is considering charging the teen with fleeing and eluding a police office.

    Time for the parents to send him out to the street corner with a sign around his neck that says 'Free To A Good Home.' Actually, it sounds like this young man needs to be sent to boot camp.

    Too late for abortion?? I wonder how many people this kid is going to take with him when he finally ends up in a smoking mound of broken glass and twisted metal. I can't apologize for thinking this scenario would have ended better in the long if he'd just have run into a bridge pylon going 90 mph... better than taking out a family too.
