A Stamford teen is behind bars facing two felony charges after a police chase ended as he crashed a stolen car head-on into a patrol vehicle in Pound Ridge, N.Y., early Monday, New York state police said.

Troopers responded to Lower Trinity Pass Road in Pound Ridge at about 1 a.m. to assist Stamford Police with a pursuit of a suspected stolen vehicle.

Upon arrival,  troopers found the pursuit had ended after 16-year-old Dereck S. Ramirez of Stamford used his vehicle to strike a Stamford patrol vehicle head on, according to state police.

Ramirez was taken into custody without further incident, and a BB gun was removed from his possession, state police said. Further investigation determined the vehicle, a red 2011 Chevrolet Silverado, had been stolen by Ramirez in Connecticut, according to police.

Ramirez was charged with third-degree criminal possession of stolen property (a Class D felony), second-degree attempted assault (a Class E felony) and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a Class A misdemeanor.

Ramirez was arraigned before the Town of Pound Ridge Justice Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail on $1,000 cash bail or $1,000 bond.

Ramirez's is next scheduled to appear before the Town of Pound Ridge Justice Court on Oct. 16 at 9 a.m.
