Redondo Beach Police Say Girl, 13, Led Them On Chase

REDONDO BEACH (AP) — Redondo Beach police say they arrested a 13-year-old girl for allegedly driving under the influence, evading arrest and possessing brass knuckles after a high speed chase that ended when she crashed.

The girl was treated for head injuries and released to her parents.

Sgt. Phil Keenan told the Torrance Daily Breeze that the Sunday chase started when an officer pulled up behind a Ford Explorer that belonged to her brother. He says two boys and two girls got out and the girl sped off.

Keenan says the girl nearly caused several crashes and, when she tried to pass a slower car, sideswiped it, causing her SUV to flip and tumble into a tree.

Keenan says police believe the teens were trying to steal alcohol when they were spotted.

      I agree she should have been sent to juvi, but arrest her parents? never heard of a kid sneaking out? kids do things without parents knowing. guess you were an angel.

    Why blame the parents, they didn’t do anything. Some kids are just little delinquents that are out of control no matter how good the parents are. That is why there are group homes and juvenile halls! By the age of 13 this girl knows right from wrong.

  • Sean

    Yeah , It’s not like the parents Values were a model for their own children or anything. “Why blame the parents?” Beacause a parent is the responsible party…. Maybe this is part of our decayed social system and fallen family unit system. Thanks 1968.
