Florida Girl age 11, Arrested in Alabama on DUI Charge

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) - An 11-year-old Florida girl is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after she led police in this Alabama beach resort on a high-speed chase.

Authorities say the chase took place Tuesday night and was caught on a dash camera in a police cruiser.

The chase started at about 10:30 pm. near the Florida line.

It ended just inside the Gulf Shores, Alabama city limits, when the girl crashed and rolled the Chevy Monte Carlo she was driving.

Police say the car sideswiped another vehicle during the chase, which reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.

Investigators say the girl was treated and released from a hospital.

The girl -- from Perdido Key in Florida -- was vacationing in the area with family members who owned the car. Her name was not released because of her age.
