Authorities charged Ivan Oslavado Rodriguez with one count each of driving while impaired, DWI with a provisional license and carrying a concealed gun.

Ricardo Rosas Tapia and Pablo Reyes, both of whom were passengers, were charged with carrying a concealed gun and resisting or obstructing a public officer.

According to arrest warrants, Reyes and Rosas were in possession of a .22 caliber handgun.

The chase started around 2:55 a.m. at Five Points in Fuquay-Varina after a deputy pulled over what he thought was a suspicious vehicle, the sheriff's office said.

At one point during the chase, a passenger in the vehicle got out of the car and ran near Hilltop Road, deputies said. Authorities were still searching for that person Tuesday afternoon.

The chase ended on North Main Street near Crittenden Drive in Holly Springs.

    It amazes me that around this time of the year and around the time students are out on Spring Break is when these kids get plum crazy and do outlandish things. This is one of them. When it gets hot and muggy...that when these kids cut loose.

    A 17-year old leads deputies on a high speed chase through Wake County when the juvenile is high on drugs and acting crazy behind the wheel....Why? He doesn't have anything else to do.
    Yeah right...Once he's in the Wake County Jail during his Spring Break from the Wake County Schools,he'll have plenty to do while being under arrest.

    We can all blame our elected officials for not enforcing our laws. These people should not even be here.

    Just some facts to ponder: 2007 Data from FBI/INS
    In Los Angeles, over 95% of arrest warrants issued for the crime of murder are for illegal aliens. At least 83% of arrest warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens. The number climbs to 86% for Albuquerque. The most wanted lists for each of these cities is comprised of at least 75% illegal aliens.
    Illegal aliens account for nearly 30% of prison populations nationwide. This includes both state and federal prisons. The cost to house these illegal aliens is more than $1.6 billion dollars each year.

    Statistics from 2005 indicate that over 75% of automobile thefts that occurred in Arizona, Nevada, California, Texas, and New Mexico were either stolen by illegal aliens or used to transport illegal aliens.

    Just food for thought......those figures were from two years ago.
