Bergheim (dpa / lnw) - During a car jaunt despite the curfew, a 14-year-old in Bergheim and four friends caught sight of the police in the car.

The youth fled on Sunday evening at excessive speed over sidewalks and red lights, as the police announced on Monday.

Finally officials stopped the car.

As it turned out, the 14-year-old was believed to have taken drugs.

Now a criminal case is waiting for numerous traffic offenses and a fine for corona violation, it said.

One of the teenagers had stolen the car key from his mother.
