DetailsNot even old enough to legally drive, a 14-year old Madison teen was arrested Saturday night, during a high-risk traffic stop, after he was spotted behind the wheel of a SUV: the second stolen vehicle he's now accused of operating in the past few days. The first was abandoned Friday evening at the McDonald's drive-thru on Verona Rd. The suspect had two 13-year old male passengers with him in a Mercury Milan which had been stolen from the Milwaukee area. Around 7:45 p.m., the young driver barreled the car into the rear of another containing a mother and daughter who were waiting for their food. There was significant damage to both cars, but thankfully no one was seriously hurt. The two 13-year old boys stayed put as the suspect took off running. He was next spotted, the next night, in a Ford Expedition with disabled plates. It belongs to an 82-year old Mauston man. He and a female friend had parked it near the valet service at the Wisconsin Dells' Ho-Chunk Casino when it disappeared around 5:00 p.m. Saturday night. It was stopped a few hours later by the MPD, around 9:50 p.m., on Ashford Lane. This time the suspect was in the company of three teenage girls. They were released; he was taken to the Juvenile Reception Center.
