Driver arrested following four-freeway CHP chase

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A man who refused to yield for a traffic stop in Tierrasanta Monday led the California Highway Patrol on a 20-minute chase over four freeways before pulling over with a flat tire and getting arrested.

The pursuit began shortly after 11 a.m. on State Route 52, near Mast Boulevard, according to the CHP.

The motorist fled at speeds in the 90s to the east, then continued along southbound SR-125, westbound SR-94 and northbound Interstate 805.

Near SR-163, the man ran over a tire-flattening spike strip that officers had placed in his path. He pulled over a short distance away, just north of Balboa Avenue, CHP public-affairs Officer Robert Catano said.

The driver, whose name was not immediately available, was handcuffed and taken into custody without further incident.
