SAN ANTONIO – A 16-year-old-boy was tased by police officers after he led them on a foot chase in front of Our Lady of the Lake University Friday.

An officer at the scene said the boy and two teenage girls were in a stolen car and got in an accident around noon near the intersection of SW 24th and San Luis streets in front of the university.

The car hit a concrete box and took down a sign before ending back onto the street.

When officers arrived, police said the teens fled on foot. Park police chased the suspects and caught up to them.
