Recently a deputy was stationary in Wheeling after a report that kids were on ATV’s and tearing up the town. The deputy soon heard and saw 2 juveniles on an ATV and the ATV being operated in a reckless and dangerous manner. The deputy activated the emergency equipment to stop the ATV and the driver chose to accelerate and flee. The deputy turned off the emergency equipment in hopes the kids would slow down and minimize opportunity for being injured. The deputy went to the location where the kids stopped and was able to have conversation with parents and the juveniles. The information is being submitted to the juvenile officer and it was obvious the juveniles were in for a hard lesson from their parents.
