14-year-old boy arrested for suspicion of DUI

BELLINGHAM -- The Washington State Patrol arrested a 14-year-old boy Wednesday morning for suspicion of driving under the influence.

The trooper first noticed the car weaving and driving about 20 mph under the speed limit at about 6:40 a.m..

When the trooper turned on his lights, the boy allegedly sped off and, after a short chase, he was finally stopped in an apartment complex on Meadowbrook Court, but not before he crashed into four other cars.

Troopers say there were also two 12-year-olds, a 15-year-old and a 53-year-old man in the car and all but one were "extremely intoxicated."

The young driver was arrested and two of the boys were taken to a local hospital for alcohol observation.
