The chase began around 1 a.m. when a patrol unit in the area of Euclid and Imperial attempted to pull over a high speed vehicle which failed to yield.
The suspect took off at speeds up to 70 mph, driving down Imperial and Lisbon, almost to Spring Valley, and then back again, cutting up and down side streets for about 10 miles.
SDPD units deployed spike strips which the suspect successfully avoided.
The second time police threw out the spike strips, the suspect drove over them, which resulted in a flat tire.
Two police cars chasing the suspect also suffered flat tires as a result of the spike strips.
The suspect continued driving with a flat tire at speeds of about 40 mph, until he came to a stop on Imperial near Valencia Park.
The suspect was arrested for felony evading, as well as running red lights and stop signs, and taken into custody without incident.
Police tell 10News that the car was not stolen and that the suspect seemed only to be concerned about the cost of replacing the flat tire.
