A motor vehicle pursuit that began on Railroad Street at 2:14 a.m. on July 31, ended in East St. Johnsbury with the arrest of a 15-year-old juvenile. After the first attempt to stop the vehicle, the vehicle continued without heeding the blue lights and siren police said. Due to the risk posed to the public by the motorist’s operation and suspected impairment, patrol officers pursued the operator. The operator was finally being stopped on Route 2 in East St. Johnsbury between the intersection of Route 18 and East Village Road. The operator, a 15-year-old juvenile, was arrested for attempting to elude while operating in a grossly negligent manner, operation without owner’s consent (aggravated), DUI #1, persons under 16 consuming alcohol, leaving the scene of an accident, and gross negligent operation. Released to a sober family member, the juvenile was cited into Caledonia Family Court.
