A 16-year-old, male Newport juvenile led Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies on a chase through a Detroit Beach neighborhood recently before he was apprehended by deputies and Michigan State Police troopers.

The pursuit began about 10:50 a.m. in the 3300 block of Fourth St. in the subdivision off N. Dixie Hwy. in Frenchtown Township, according to a deputy’s report. The youth was wanted for being a runaway and for escape from custody. Several deputies went to a home and saw the youth in a garage, but he saw them coming and ran through a back yard and jumped over a fence to elude the officers. While pursuing the youth, one deputy fell on wet grass as other deputies called for the youth to stop running and give himself up. The youth continued to run through yards and jumped over fences, damaging some of the fences, the report said. Another deputy fell on the grass. At one point, he hid under a deck at one house. Deputies eventually corralled the suspect with the help of troopers at a residence and took him to the Monroe County Youth Center, where he was lodged without incident.
