Miami Beach, Fl.(Florida News Network)- The driver of the stolen vehicle seen in this video was arrested today. Officers also discovered a firearm with an extended magazine on the driver’s seat.
The vehicle initially fled from officers and then struck a Miami Beach Motorcycle Officer, who thankfully escaped injury. Several occupants bailed from the vehicle and were detained (two males remain at large).
A sole occupant remained inside and continued fleeing from officers. The driver in the video attempted to strike another motorcycle officer with his vehicle but was unsuccessful.
He made his way onto closed Ocean Drive by hopping a sidewalk and entering through the park. The emergency sirens of the police car following the stolen car alerted pedestrians and cyclists of the incoming danger and possibly prevented injury.
The 15-year-old driver now faces several felony charges. Detectives are actively pursuing several leads to locate and arrest the two additional subjects who remain at large.
