HAWORTH -

A teenager sang the theme from the television show "Cops" after he was arrested following a chase through Bergen County.

Haworth police say that the 16-year-old Newark resident was driving a stolen car when officers gave chase on Saturday. Officers pursued the vehicle through a golf course before the suspect bailed out.

“It was a very dangerous situation,” says Detective Sgt. Justin Fox.

The teen can be heard singing on dash cam video, "Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?"

Police say that they found burglary tools and other items inside the stolen Mazda.

“We found burglary tools, ski masks, gloves, screwdrivers…debit cards and cash,” Fox says.

It is believed that the items were stolen from homes in nearby Closter and Harrington Park.

The teen, whose name was not released because he's a juvenile, faces charges including eluding, resisting arrest by flight, burglary and receiving stolen property.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
