Spike Strip Stops Suspect After Silver Strand Pursuit

A suspect was taken into custody by the Coronado Police Department after failing to pull over for sheriff's deputies on Palm Avenue.

A suspect was taken into custody Friday evening after leading San Diego County Sheriff's Department deputies on a brief chase on State Route 75, Lt. Kenn Nelson said.

Sheriff deputies first attempted to pull over a vehicle at 10:16 p.m. near Saturn Boulevard and Palm Avenue in San Diego for a traffic violation, Nelson said, but the suspect continued to drive 35 to 55 mph into Imperial Beach.

"The person continued northbound on State Route 75 where the Coronado Police Department deployed a spike strip, which stopped the vehicle and the suspect was taken into custody without further incident," Nelson said.

The chase ended after about 10 minutes near Silver Strand and Coronado Cays boulevards, Nelson said. The suspect was the sole occupant of the vehicle.

It is not yet known if the driver faces who has not yet been identified will face additional charges, Nelson said.

Brainiac! Lol. Run from the police on the strand? That's brilliant. Next time try running sound on Seacoast and see where that gets you!

What was Lake Forest political poser Peter Herzog doing in Imperial Beach anyway ? Didn't they suspend his license when he got that DUI last month ?
