Boston Police report officers who pulled over a car on Columbia Road near Geneva Avenue in Dorchester late last night pulled out a 13-year-old from behind the wheel - and that they then had to pick up the loaded gun that fell from "his leg area" as he was being pat frisked.
Police say officers on patrol decided to query the plates on a car that was traveling very sloooowly down Columbia Road towards Blue Hill Avenue around 11:30 p.m. and discovered the plates were not the ones registered to that type of car. They activated their blue lights, but the driver ignored them, so they engaged in a slow-speed chase - the driver did not stop, but also did not speed up - until they were able to make him pull over, police say.
Officers removed the juvenile male and, as they conducted a pat frisk of his person, observed a firearm fall from his leg area to the ground.
The firearm was determined to be a .380 Ruger loaded with one round in the chamber and five rounds in the magazine.
The kid was charged as delinquent for unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, driving without a license, attaching registration plates, driving an unregistered car and refusing to stop for a police officer, police say.
