An 18-year-old North Little Rock man was arrested Thursday after a vehicle chase that reached "reckless" speeds and ended with his car crashing, authorities said.
North Little Rock police say Charles Boyd Jr. was eventually taken into custody about 12:20 p.m. on charges of fleeing, carrying a weapon and resisting arrest. He was also wanted in Little Rock in juvenile court in a robbery case, according to an arrest report.
The report says the chase started after a North Little Rock officer spotted a Chevy Impala turn without using its signal. The driver, later identified by police as Boyd, also wasn't wearing a seat belt.
According to the report, the officer turned his patrol vehicle around to make a traffic stop, at which point the Impala accelerated and took off at a "high rate of speed." The car later ran a stop sign at a "reckless" speed before crashing in the 800 block of Division Street, the report said.
Police say Boyd ran from there and was eventually tackled on Vestal Street after a foot chase. A pistol was reportedly recovered from his jacket.
Boyd was booked into the Pulaski County jail, where he remained Friday morning without bail. An initial court appearance is set for Tuesday.
