HAMBLEN COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A teen is in trouble after leading law enforcement on a high speed chase through two counties.

A deputy spotted the 17-year old at an industrial park in Hamblen County Friday and knew he was wanted out of Greenback.

Deputies say the teen took off and at one point speeds got up to 85-miles an hour.

He eventually blew a tire and was stopped on Andrew Johnson Highway.
