SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A brief pursuit involving a stolen BMW ended Wednesday morning near a nursing home parking lot.

The incident began shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday when a new model BMW was reported stolen in Santee.

Two hours later, San Diego police spotted the BMW traveling westbound on state Route 94 near the Euclid Avenue exit.

When officers attempted to stop the car, the driver refused to pull over and sped away. With police in pursuit, the BMW made its way onto northbound Interstate 805, then transitioned to Interstate 15.

The driver exited on Adams Avenue, crashed into a wall, and then got back on northbound I-15.

After exiting Camino Del Rio South, police said the driver parked the stolen BMW in a nursing home parking lot in Mission Valley and ran away. Police found him a few blocks away and arrested him.

The driver's name and the charges he faces were not immediately confirmed.
