Boy in custody after 100 mph TX truck chase

LA GRANGE, TX A judge in La Grange on Wednesday decided the child must stay in juvenile detention during the investigation. Authorities say the underage boy from Comal County did not have permission Monday night to take his father's pickup.

Officers responded to 911 calls about a vehicle, with its lights off, being driven erratically on Interstate 10.

Patrol car dash cam video shows the pickup weaving in and out of traffic in Fayette County. Officers threw down a spiked strip, which the pickup drove over, to end the 14-mile chase.

Video shows the boy, with his hands raised, exiting the vehicle and saying he was trying to call his mother.

Nobody was hurt.
