Man arrested after leading police on 3 pursuits

SAN DIEGO - A man who led police on three separate high-speed pursuits was arrested early Tuesday and faces charges of felony evading.

Officers responded to a civil complaint Monday morning when the suspect sped off—leading units on a pursuit. The suspect escaped from the officers but was later found at a residence on Pogo Row, and led units on a second pursuit. The suspect successfully escaped after stopping at a residence on the 12500 block of 2nd Avenue in Chula Vista, according to the San Diego Police Department.

A third pursuit began around 11 p.m. Monday after officers returned to the residence on Pogo Row to look for the suspect. The suspect was later arrested in San Clemente—70 miles from where the chase started—where Border Patrol agents stopped him using spike strips, according to police.

The suspect faces three charges of felony evading and is suspected of a DUI. His passenger, a woman, was also arrested but it wasn't immediately known whether she will face charges.
