DUI suspect with previous DUI arrest from Glendale police, crashes in Murrieta
A man who had been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence a month ago was again arrested on that offense after authorities say he led Glendale police and California Highway Patrol officers on a high-speed chase that ended in Murrieta, officials said.
A Glendale police officer first spotted the vehicle in that city around 11 p.m. Monday and tried to pull the driver over for a minor traffic offense, Glendale police said.
The driver refused to pull over and instead drove off, getting on a nearby freeway, officials said.
The man got off in Los Angeles and drove through portions of the city before jumping on the eastbound 10 Freeway, authorities said.
At that time, he led officers on a pursuit that reached speeds of 100 mph, police said.
When he reached the 71 Freeway, Glendale police handed the chase to CHP, police said. After about 20 minutes, CHP officers laid down a spike strip on the southbound lanes of the 15 Freeway in Murrieta.
The vehicle came to a stop but the driver got out and ran, Glendale police said. He was captured a short time later and arrested on suspicion of DUI and evading.
