Police: Woodland teen’s arrest stemmed from ‘very bad choices’

Woodland police say it was “a string of very bad choices” that resulted in a juvenile’s arrest and a gun being taken off the street Sunday night.

According to a Woodland Police Department Facebook post, the 17-year-old male’s first poor decision was to venture to a local park to purchase drugs from strangers, taking with him his father’s loaded 9mm handgun.

“During the ‘transaction’ the subjects selling the drugs pointed a gun at the male juvenile, but later fled after being startled by an unrelated passerby,” the post said. “As part of this string of bad choices, the juvenile began to chase these subjects in his vehicle through the outskirts of Woodland.”

The chase ended when the juvenile crashed into an unrelated vehicle and fled. Police arrested him on hit-and-run and multiple weapon charges after he returned to the scene and officers found the gun inside the car. His name was not released because he is a minor.
