MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) A 13-year-old girl who was arrested for drunken driving in eastern Wisconsin last week has been arrested again.

The Manitowoc Police Department says she's the same girl who was caught driving while intoxicated Aug. 13. Five other juveniles, 14 and under, were along for the ride back then. She was released to her mother.

Now, the department says, the same 13-year-old was spotted driving late Thursday afternoon. She took off when a squad car activated its flashing lights and siren, with four other juveniles in the car. They fled for about two blocks before exiting the vehicle -- without putting it into park. All five were caught after a short foot chase. The vehicle rolled up into a yard.

The girl was charged with multiple new violations, including fleeing police.
