MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WFLA) — Police arrested a 15-year-old boy Sunday after he led them on a dangerous chase through pedestrian-heavy streets of Miami Beach.

Another camera angle shows the pursuit continue down another pedestrian-heavy street. During the chase, police said the driver struck an officer on a motorcycle and attempted to strike another.

The child was eventually arrested near 6 Street and Washington Avenue. Officers reportedly found a gun with an extended magazine on the driver’s seat. He faces several felony charges.
