Police checked the late-model Cadillac the group had been driving and have determined that it was not stolen.
The two suspects were arrested about 90 minutes after the incident began Tuesday.
First, state police Tfc. Marc Price had forced the suspects off the road and arrested the Miller youth.
Then after hearing that a suspect was fleeing toward woods near the intersection of Routes 216 and 108, Tfc. Steve Proctor and pilot Cpl. Scott Richardson, in a police helicopter, spotted the suspect running through a field.
When he ran down Mr. Soloman after the helicopter landed, Trooper Proctor, who had been given scant details, had no idea whether the suspect was armed; he turned out not to have been.
"I kept running through a scenario," Trooper Proctor said. "What if he turns? Can I fire and then treat the guy who just tried to kill me?
"Most of the time they see the helicopter and give up. But this guy kept on running. I was afraid he would get into the woods. We landed behind him and I ran him down. He was getting tired at the time, thank goodness.
"He didn't obey my commands. When I caught up with him, his hands were across his chest. I thought he might have a weapon. I told him three or four times to open his hands. He refused. It's as close as I've come to shooting somebody."
