In the news, last night a 12-year old girl led Charlotte-Mecklenburg police on a midnight chase. According to the police, she drove more than 50-miles starting from her home in Gaffney, South Carolina. Police chased her down in I-77/I-85 interchange in North Charlotte.
She could have killed her, according to Mary Triplett. The car was her neighbour’s that was reported stolen by the neighbour after he parked it at VFW Post in Gaffney for about a week as he was unable to start the engine.
When her activity became known to her father, her father said that he recently got her custody from her mother who is living in Myrtle Beach and he believes that she was heading to Myrtle Beach in order to meet her friends.
He also stated that he seen her doing chores around the house around 11 p.m. before he fell asleep on the couch and after a little while he found her missing. When he found himself unable to find her, he called a Police officer.
She was then taken to Presbyterian Hospital before her custody was handed over to her father. Legal charges were filed against her on account of driving without a license, failing to keep the control of the lane and not stopping by and ignoring the police. She may also be charged for auto theft charges as the investigation is still in process.
As per researchers, “The girl got in an argument with her father on Feb 18 night at his Gaffney home after that awaited him to fall asleep before running off in a pickup truck to spot a pal in Fort Mill. Police spied the pickup around 50 miles away riding around 20 miles per hour on Interstate 77 in Charlotte.”
No charges have been lodged thus far, though a few reports point out the female was shifted to a local hospital with a collapsed finger. It is also not clear where that wound originates from.
In addition, the girl was also charged with several traffic infringements.
