Police say the teenager who led officers on a chase across the metro last week was intoxicated.

Eighteen-year-old Jacob Aves lead officers on a nearly 20-minute chase that started in Ankeny and ended just south of the west mixmaster on Friday.

Police say Aves’ car blew a tire and then had mechanical problems which caused the pursuit to end.

He is charged with eluding and operating while intoxicated and is scheduled to be in court for a preliminary hearing Tuesday.
