Fresno Police say they tried to pullover a dark-colored SUV around 9:30 p.m. Monday in the area of Peach and Clay Ave.  Officer say at one point during the stop its 17-year-old driver shifted into reverse, smashed into a patrol car behind him, and took off.

The SUV, reportedly filled with other teens, was then found at the golf course near Fresno Yosemite International Airport.  Three teen girls believed inside the vehicle were released to their parents.

But the 17-year-old driver and his 19-year-old friend were taken into custody.
