"One of the front tires came off the rim as the vehicle continued to flee," Clemens said. "The vehicle came to a stop under the Beltline on Park Street, with all three occupants fleeing on foot."
A police dog from the Dane County Sheriff's Office was brought to the scene and found one of the boys who was a passenger in the car, while the driver and other passenger were arrested following a short foot chase.
The driver was taken to the Juvenile Reception Center, arrested on tentative charges that include auto theft, eluding and resisting, while the passengers also were taken to juvenile lockup on tentative charges of auto theft and resisting.
