A 16-year-old male from Centereach, New York was arrested Wednesday evening by Deputy Sheriffs following a vehicle pursuit on the Long Island Expressway and William Floyd Parkway.  At approximately 9 p.m., the subject was operating a 2014 Toyota westbound on the L.I.E. at a high rate of speed, when Deputy Sheriff Thomas Young initiated a traffic stop. The subject fled, exiting onto northbound William Floyd Parkway and entered Brookhaven National Laboratory. There he fled on foot and was apprehended a short time later.

The vehicle had been reported stolen out of Riverhead Town. Charges include Possession of Stolen Property, Unlawful Fleeing, Driving While Intoxicated-Drugs, Resisting Arrest, and Reckless Driving. He will be arraigned today in Central Islip.
