YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. – Two Yorktown teens were arrested and charged by Yorktown police with reckless driving, unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, unlicensed operator, unsafe passing, failure to comply and operating an unregistered vehicle last week.
The teenage boys' names are being withheld due to their age.
