GREENVILLE, N.C. — A North Carolina teenager was charged after authorities said he led troopers on a 100 mph chase in his stepfather’s SUV.

WNCT-TV reported that 16-year-old Steven Rollins got into an argument with his stepfather Tuesday morning, which led to the teenager assaulting the man and taking his SUV.

Authorities said the suspect led officers on a chase which clocked the teen driving at 100 mph. Troopers said the suspect ran two stop signs, almost hit a car and truck and tried making a right turn at nearly 80 mph.

His fast right turn caused him to crash into an abandoned house, troopers said. Paramedics were called and the teenager was eventually charged.

Authorities said the suspect was charged with speeding, felony fleeing to elude arrest, reckless driving, two stop sign violations, and having no driver’s license.
