Huntsville police took a teenager into custody Monday morning after they said he led them on a pursuit and crashed into a utility pole in the Five Points neighborhood.

Police said they got a call about a juvenile poking around in an impound lot just after 8 a.m. When an officer approached the boy, they said he got into his truck and took off.

The teenager crashed the truck into a pole at Pratt Avenue and Russell Street, police said. He was not injured and was taken into custody. There was no immediate word on what he was charged with.

A Huntsville Police Department spokesman said the truck had a stolen license tag.

Police on the scene said the boy has had run-ins with police before and might be charged as an adult.
