CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say a 12-year-old girl from South Carolina led police on a slow chase through part of Charlotte.
Investigators said the girl got in an argument with her father Monday night at his Gaffney, S.C. home then waited for him to fall asleep before driving off in a pickup truck to see a friend in Fort Mill, S.C.
Police spotted the pickup about 50 miles away driving around 20 mph on Interstate 77 in Charlotte. The girl didn't stop until authorities say she was forced off the highway near Interstate 85.
The girl was charged with several traffic violations, and her family was contacted by authorities. Police are still investigating the incident.
