MANORVILLE -

A Centereach teenager is accused of driving high and leading sheriff deputies on a chase in a stolen car.

It all started around 9 p.m. Wednesday on the Long Island Expressway near Exit 70 in Manorville. 

The sheriff's department says a deputy tried to pull over a speeding Camry with no license plates.

Authorities say the 16-year-old behind the wheel drove all the way to Brookhaven National Lab, turned onto a dirt road, hit a berm and then ran off on foot.

He was arrested a short time later.
