Deputies arrest teen speeding 140 mph in chase north of Gillette

 

GILLETTE (WNE) — Campbell County sheriff’s deputies arrested a 16-year-old boy who led them on a short pursuit north of Gillette Friday night, which reached speeds of 140 mph.

Deputies saw a black 2015 Cadillac speeding 142 mph in a 55 mph zone near Hannum Road at about 8:15 p.m. Friday. 

When they tried to stop the vehicle, the teen sped north on Highway 14-16, driving into the Eagle Butte Mine parking lot before leading deputies back out to the highway, Undersheriff Quentin Reynolds said.

The chase lasted for about 15 minutes, Reynolds said, before the boy pulled over about 30 miles north of Gillette. Deputies performed a high risk traffic stop and arrested the 16-year-old for eluding law enforcement and reckless driving.

A 15-year-old girl who was a passenger in the Cadillac was released to her parents.

The boy told deputies he didn’t stop because he was afraid he’d get in trouble, Reynolds said.
