What are the chances an ATV can outrun a police vehicle? Not great, actually. Especially on city streets.
Just ask 18-year-old Jaden Alvarez of La Salle, whom Peru police saw illegally riding a four-wheel ATV westbound on Route 6 at the Route 251 overpass on Thursday. Police gave chase, and Alvarez tried to get a way. But, he was stopped at 6th and Plum streets, and cited for operation of an ATV on a street, operation of an uninsured motor vehicle, no valid driver's license, and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer.
Alvarez was released with a notice to appear in court.
