A teenager was arrested by Concord police on Tuesday after he stole his teacher's car and then led officers on a foot chase through a local elementary school, a police corporal said.
The teen is a 17-year-old student at Diablo Community Day School.
He took his teacher's car about 2 p.m. Tuesday, police Cpl. James Carroll said.
The teacher called police shortly after the theft, and officers found the teen driving the car nearby.
When they tried to stop him, the teen darted out of the car and ran into Woodside Elementary School at 761 San Simeon Drive, Carroll said.
The teen reportedly didn't shift the car into park before jumping out, and the empty vehicle crashed into a parked car.
The elementary school was placed on lockdown for about 30 minutes while officers searched for the teen. He was found a few blocks from the school, Carroll said.
The teen was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run, evading police and felony auto theft.
Concord police withheld the boy's name because he is a juvenile.
