Authorities then spotted the stolen vehicle driving north on Interstate 380, near Center Point, and a chase began that reached speeds of 110 miles an hour. Stop sticks were used and once the vehicle came to a stop, deputies say the driver did not resist arrest.
Seventeen-year-old Nicholas Scott of Palo has been charged with second degree robbery, a felony charge of eluding authorities and other traffic violations.
