JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas police have arrested a teenager who they say led officers on a car chase after he drove to a state road test facility without a license.

The Jonesboro Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1u53BLM ) the 19-year-old was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of felony fleeing.

The teen showed up to take the test at the Arkansas State Police facility in Jonesboro. Police say he fled the office and drove away after a driver's license examiner told officers the teen drove himself there without a license. They say he struck a patrol car on his way out, causing about $6,500 in damages.

The chase ended when the suspect crashed into a home. The vehicle broke through the wall of the house, which caused about $20,000 in damages. No injuries were reported.
