Teen on indefinite supervision in ATV case



A 17-year-old boy admitted Wednesday in juvenile court to attempting to flee and elude police. An officer tried to stop the boy, who was riding an ATV in the area of the former Fort Ritchie Army base, Assistant State's Attorney Michelle Flores said.

The boy headed into a wooded area and up a mountainside, eventually crossing over into Pennsylvania, Flores said.

The officer called Pennsylvania authorities, who apprehended the boy, she said.

Washington County Circuit Judge M. Kenneth Long accepted the boy's admission and admonished him for speeding on the ATV and fleeing from police.

"You could have rolled and broken an arm or a wrist," Long said.

Long placed the boy on indefinite supervision and ordered him to perform 25 hours of community service.
