Chula Vista man leads police to home during chase

CHULA VISTA - A drive led officers to his home during a high-speed police chase overnight Sunday.

The incident began at about 11:30 p.m. when Chula Vista police tried to stop a Mercedes on Olympic Boulevard. The driver refused to stop and a 10-minute chase ensued onto northbound Interstate 805. The car then made its way to westbound State Route 54, Chula Vista police said.

The man reached speeds of 80 miles per hour, police said. He eventually exited the highway onto National City Boulevard and entered an apartment complex off Woodlawn Street, where he got out and ran. Officers caught him and took him into custody. They later discovered he lives at the complex where he stopped.

Two other occupants of the car who did not try to flee were detained.

The driver, who was not identified, could face DUI charges.
