PLACER COUNTY – A 15-year-old boy has been arrested after he led deputies on a high-speed chase in the North Lake Tahoe area.

The Placer County Sheriff's Office says, around 11 p.m. on Aug. 3, a deputy pulled over a car along Highway 28. Just as the deputy was walking up to the driver, however, the suspect hit the gas.

A chase was attempted, but the deputy eventually lost sight of the suspect.

It wasn't too long before the deputy caught up to the suspect, though, since he had managed to take the license plate number.

The car was registered to an address in Tahoe Vista and deputies soon paid that place a visit – finding the car that sped away parked right outside.

As deputies soon learned, the suspect driver was a 15-year-old boy. He was soon arrested and is facing charges of evading and driving without a license.
