EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) - Two people were arrested Monday after police say they led officers on a high-speed pursuit in the El Cajon area.

According to El Cajon police, officers tried to stop a Honda Civic for speeding on W. Main Street just after 8:30 a.m., but the driver refused to pull over and sped away.
