Boys Allegedly Take Car, Flag Down Deputy

Two boys who stranded a car they allegedly took without permission flagged down another car for help — and realized too late that it was a marked sheriff's cruiser.

The 16- and 14-year-olds sneaked out of their homes early Thursday morning and took a car owned by the 14-year-old's mother, police Lt. Sawley Wilde said.

After the 16-year-old high-centered the car on a dirt berm around 3 a.m., the boys flagged down a passing motorist. Wilde said the motorist turned out to be Campbell County Sheriff's Cpl. Eric Hyland, who was on patrol.

Wilde said the 14-year-old was returned to his mother and the 16-year-old, who was on juvenile probation, was taken to jail.
