A teenager pleaded guilty Friday to multiple felony charges after crashing a stolen car in Mt. Juliet. Charges include felony evading, reckless endangerment and theft over $1,000. 

Police say the 17-year-old boy was taken into custody after crashing a stolen car Thursday night around 11 p.m. on Lebanon Road near Nonaville Road.  

Mt. Juliet police initially reported the teenage boy crashed into a utility pole while trying to speed away from an officer.

The officer reportedly found the vehicle crashed into a pole and learned the car did not belong to the driver. 

The car was stolen from Nashville, according to Mt. Juliet police.  

Metro police were called to assist with the investigation. Metro officers spoke with the owner of the vehicle, who was unaware it had been taken, according to Mt. Juliet police. 

The teen was charged with evading and theft of property. 

No additional information was immediately released.
