Teen faces charges after overnight joyride in Pulaski Co.

PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT/WYMT) - The Pulaski County sheriff said a teen was arrested after stealing a car and taking it on a joyride.

The 16 year old reportedly stole a Chevy Equinox just outside of Somerset, and took it for a spin.

After a short chase, the sheriff said about five or six people jumped out of the SUV before the driver took off again, going over 100 miles per hour.

Fifteen minutes later and one close call with a semi...the teen smashed into and split a pole.

He now faces three felony counts, plus several other charges.
