The Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD), Northside District, is investigating a domestic disturbance where the mother believes her son was involved in a robbery overnight.
At approximately 1 p.m. EDT, officers responded to 12701 NW 17 Place in regards to a disturbance between a mother and her son. The mother stated to the arriving officers that her son fled the home after an argument ensued because she believed he was involved in a robbery overnight. As officers were interviewing the mother, they spotted the juvenile across the street. The subject once again fled and led officers on a foot chase where he was able to double back, jump into one of the marked police cars, and flee the area. Officers lost sight of the stolen cruiser. Numerous 911 calls were then received of a police car driving erratically and striking approximately three civilian cars. The subject was then located once he lost control of the car and crashed into a building at 2601 NW 175 Street.

They then assisted MDPD with apprehending the subject.
