Driving with 100 Pounds of Pot, 14-year-old Boy Leads Cops at High Speed to Arizona Mills Mall
You're 14. You've got 100 pounds of pot and an illegal immigrant in the car, and you're being chased by a ticked-off deputy.
Where do you go? The mall, naturally.
On Tuesday night, a Department of Public Safety officer tried to pull over a passenger car on Interstate 10 near Casa Grande, but the driver fled. A short while later, a Maricopa County Sheriff's deputy saw the vehicle fly by at more than 100 mph.
With the deputy on his tail, the boy drove to Arizona Mills Mall and crashed his car into a garage door at GameWorks. He then took off his shirt and ran inside the mall, but cops soon collared both him and the passenger.
The kid probably won't serve serious time for this -- and he'll have a helluva story to tell his delinquent buddies at the food court.
