Lubbock Teens Lead Authorities on High Speed Chase

A Lubbock teen allegedly led sheriff's deputies on a high speed chase across the city in his mother's car. Authorities stopped the Chevy Lumina after the driver allegedly ran a stop sign at FM 1585 and Interstate 27. After running a check of his driver's license, deputies realized Miguel Flores, 17, was reported as a runaway with the Lubbock Police Department. As the deputy returned to the vehicle, the teen sped off.

Flores led authorities on an hour long chase that included driving on the wrong side of the road, narrowly missing other vehicles, and speeds up to 70 miles per hour through residential neighborhoods.

The chase came to an end around 2:15 a.m., in front of his mother's home in the 600 block of 31st Street.

Flores, and his passenger, Alan Girardot, 18, were both tased and taken to the Lubbock County Jail.

Flores is charged with evading arrest with a vehicle, evading arrest or detention, and the aggravated assault of a police officer. He is being held on $31,000 bond, and remains behind bars as of Friday evening.

Girardot was charged with a misdemeanor count of fleeing, and has since been released.
