An Idaho teenager was arrested this morning after attempting to flee Oregon State Police in a stolen Ford Mustang at speeds of up to 153 miles per hour on Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon.

Police say the high-speed pursuit ended when officers successfully spiked one of the fleeing car'* tires.

It started at 7:30 a.m. when the 17-year-old juvenile male suspect from Star, Idaho, was driving a stolen 2006 Ford Mustang GT and attempted to use a stolen credit card to purchase gas at an Arlington-area gas station.

The suspect left eastbound from the gas station on Interstate 84. After the attempt to use the stolen credit card was reported, police waited for him about 18 miles east of Arlington.

The Ford Mustang sped by police with a radar reading of 153 mph. Even after hitting a spike strip the car continued eastbound at speeds over 130 mph.

The Ford Mustang continued another five miles until the right front tire blew out. The driver then pulled over, stopped and got out of the car where he laid on the ground until he was taken into custody without further incident.

The 17-year-old driver faces a host of criminal charges including: unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, two counts of felony attempt to elude in a vehicle, two counts of reckless driving, two counts of exceeding the posted speed limit and failure to have an operators license.

The car was reportedly stolen in Boise when the suspect allegedly found an unlocked garage and took it.

Additional charges may be pending in Gilliam and other counties as the investigation continues.

The suspectí* name is being withheld at this time unless he is charged as an adult.






Do mustangs go that fast?

I make my triple digit speed runs on Highway 20 in Eastern Oregon. South of 84, but parallel to it.






And I beat that rookie by 3mph. 3 years ago!

If the police say it, it must be true.

Seriously, since it was a GT, it could have a reprogrammed prom that did away with the top speed limiter. I would say its entirely possible.

Yeah...they can go that fast. They're more about acceleration, though .
