A teen who ran from officers and jumped on a moving train in west Charlotte last Wednesday has been arrested, police say.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say officers attempted to stop 17-year-old William Mason, who was driving a stolen car. It started on Brookshire Boulevard near Hoskins Road. 

Police say Mason got caught in traffic on Berryhill Road and jumped from a black Honda at nearby train tracks. He then reportedly ran alongside a moving train and appeared to jump on board one of the cars for a brief time.
