A heavily tattooed man was arrested after he tried to hide from authorities in Lemon Grove.
LEMON GROVE, Calif. (KGTV) - A man with tattoos all over his face was arrested late Monday night after hiding in a Lemon Grove family’s garage to evade deputies he allegedly led on a high-speed chase.
Just after 11 p.m., La Mesa police attempted to pull over a Honda Civic that was reported stolen on Alvarado Road, but the car sped away.
Police pursued the Civic on eastbound Interstate 8 onto southbound state Route 125 before it exited onto surface streets in Spring Valley.
After getting onto northbound SR-125, the Civic -- reaching speeds up to 100 mph -- made its way to eastbound SR-94 back into the Spring Valley area.
The driver abandoned the Civic and ran away after crashing into a parked truck in the 2100 block of Rebecca Way in Lemon Grove.
Authorities said the man jumped over several fences and tried to enter a home on Camino De Las Palmas, which startled family members inside.
The heavily tattooed man, who was not immediately identified, was caught a short time later hiding inside the family’s garage.
No injuries were reported during the pursuit.
10News learned the man faces multiple unspecified charges.
