SPARKS, NV - The Nevada Highway Patrol is searching for a 17-year-old boy who ran from troopers.
Around 8:30 PM Saturday, troopers arrested a driver for DUI near the intersection of Sparks Blvd & East Lincoln Way.
While waiting for the vehicle to be towed, troopers decided to give the 17-year-old passenger a ride home.
The teen was patted down to make sure he didn't have any weapons before he was allowed into a patrol car.
That's when troopers discovered he was armed.
The teen struggled with troopers, then took off running.
Sparks police were called in to help with the search.
A canine officer led searchers to a nearby apartment complex before losing the scent.
Troopers say they know the teen's identity and are seeking a warrant for his arrest.
