Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 12-year-old boy on Sunday after he crashed a vehicle following a short pursuit with police.

The sheriff said at one point there were five kids in the vehicle. When the child driver crashed on his own, deputies reportedly recovered 9 mm bullets in his pocket. They later found a gun believed to have been thrown out of the child’s moving vehicle during the pursuit. Authorities say the child had no prior criminal history other than a felony warrant for conspiracy to commit burglary of another vehicle.

This started around noon on Sunday, and ended when the child drove west onto Bataan Memorial East, going the wrong way into a head-on collision with another driver, who did not suffer life-threatening injuries. Authorities said the child also did not have injuries.
