Newly released dash camera footage shows a high-speed chase as officers pursed a 12-year-old-girl for more than 40 miles.

A 12-year-old girl who led police on a wild chase in Montgomery County a few weeks ago is back in custody.

According to her attorney, the girl had behavioral issues at the home to which she was released.

The chase happened back on June 30. Police say the girl took her grandmother's car and reached speeds of up to 118 miles per hour, sideswiping vehicles and putting lives at risk.

Fortunately, no one was injured, including her 5-year-old sister, who was in the backseat of the vehicle.

Officers only learned of what was going on after the 12-year-old girl's grandmother called police, noticing both she and the 5-year-old were gone, along with her car.

The girl was released to her uncle after a hearing, but is now back in custody.
