EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A teenager previously convicted of dragging an NYPD officer in Brooklyn has been arrested again after allegedly stealing a car and leading police on a chase.
Police say Justin Murrell, 19, ran a red light and led police on a chase early Sunday morning in East New York.
Police Murrell was driving recklessly and blew through a red light, eventually leading officers on the high-speed chase and smashing into several cars near Van Sinderen and New Lots Avenues.
Murrell tried to run away but was eventually taken into custody around 1:20 a.m.
Murrell had a little more than two weeks left on his parole after he dragged an NYPD officer back in 2016, leaving the officer with permanent brain damage.
