A juvenile who led Bethel Police in pursuit and then fled on foot has been charged.  Officers tried to pull a car over on Chestnut Street around 5am yesterday for having a loud exhaust, but the driver accelerated.  The motorist was seen driving on the wrong side of the road in the South Street/Taylor Avenue area, and this time stopped for police. 


As the officer approached the car, the juvenile sped off and later crashed.  The driver and a passenger fled on foot, with police searching the Timber Oaks community for them.  A K9, Danbury and State Police also responded to the area. 


The driver was identified and located in a nearby home.  Bethel Police say the juvenile was wanted for a previous incident and was the subject of an active take-into-custody order.


There were no injuries involved in the incident.
