COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Colorado Springs say a 15-year-old boy lead them on a chase in a stolen car.

The teenager was found taking a nap in the car at the Crosslands Hotel off of Highway 24 on Wednesday morning. The car was reported stolen more than a week ago.

Police say the teenager hit another car parked outside an apartment complex.

An officer was able to corner him for a moment, but the driver rammed the officer’s car twice.

That’s when officers had the teenager surrounded.
