Colorado authorities say 14-year-old girl faces charges after 100-mile chase

Authorities say a 14-year-old girl faces several charges after a nearly 100-mile chase at speeds reaching more than 100 mph at times.

The Colorado State Patrol says the girl, whose name wasn't released, led officers on a chase Tuesday from Arriba in eastern Colorado to Aurora. State Patrol spokeswoman Health Cobbler says the chase started at about 7 a.m. when the teen allegedly failed to pay for $35 in gas.

Cobbler says the girl's car was stopped when "stop sticks" put down by the State Patrol punctured the tires.

Authorities say the girl was reported missing the previous night and the car she was driving was reported stolen out of Westminster.

She faces charges of eluding, speeding and theft. Her hometown wasn't available.
