Girl charged in DUI, chase

‘An 11-year-old Perdido Key girl has been charged with driving under the influence after she led Orange Beach police on a high-speed chase.

Greg Duck, Orange Beach assistant police chief, said the Tuesday night chase — which was caught on a dashboard camera in a police cruiser — started about 10:30 p.m. in Orange Beach near the Florida line. It ended just inside the Gulf Shores city limits when the girl crashed and rolled the Chevy Monte Carlo she was driving. [..]

Police said the car sideswiped another vehicle during the chase, which reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour. [..]

Duck said the girl told police she was on her way to pick up her sister at a concert in Orange Beach.’
