Good for you, never give up. Some children need to know their limits. He could be testing those limits with you. If your son behaves in a negative manner and you become stressed he will feel it and it can upset him more. I have stared down a 6 ft 4 in 180 lbs 17 year old son (mustache included) when he decided, I couldn't do anything to him and discovered differently very quick.
Your son is acting out for a reason it could be a need for structure, or a desire for his biological father, many possibilities. Work out a plan that includes consequences for dangerous behavior. If your son runs away again from you take him to the local police dept and ask an officer to have a word with your son. The officer can explain how dangerous his behavior is. Many police officers are happy to help keep a child out of danger. They will not scare your son.
You know your child best, decide what consequences are effective and stick with them.
