An article in two editions of Friday's Evening Sun about a 12-year-old boy backing a stolen car into a Baltimore police cruiser Friday morning should have said the car was stolen earlier that day. Due to erroneous information from police, it was reported that the car had been stolen in January.
The Evening Sun regrets the error.
A 12-year-old South Baltimore boy was arrested early today after he backed the stolen car he was driving into a police car while attempting to elude capture.
The youth, a resident of the 400 block of Furrow St., was charged with auto theft and traffic counts.
He was in the custody of juvenile authorities, said Agent Arlene Jenkins, a spokeswoman for the city police.
Officer John Dodge, of the city traffic investigation unit, said Baltimore County Officer Dana P. Kaczynski, of the Wilkens District, observed a 1991 Plymouth Acclaim being driven recklessly on Edmondson Avenue in Baltimore County around 3 a.m.
