ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (KRQE/CNN) – Four girls between the ages of 12 and 13 face charges in what New Mexico police say was a “scary” and “concerning” incident of alleged underage drinking.

Alamogordo Police say they were on an unrelated call earlier this month when a suspicious car caught their attention, but even before they tried to pull it over, the car’s driver took off at a high rate of speed.

Officers chased the car until the driver lost control, plowing into a street sign and shattering the front windshield before nearly hitting two police cars.
