Posted on July 1, 2014

Driver in Custody After Lengthy PursuitA suspect was taken into custody Tuesday evening following a police pursuit that began in southern orange county and ended on the 5 Freeway in Castaic.

The suspected DUI driver was taken into custody without incident. The Black Maxima came to stop after driving over a spike strip. The driver exited the car near Templin Highway.

The pursuit started around 9:40 p.m. when the car failed to stop after officers tried to make a traffic stop near the intersection of Rockfield Boulevard and Ridge Rouge Drive in Lake Forest, according to Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

The deputies followed the suspect on the freeway, but relinquished the pursuit to the California Highway Patrol in the Santa Ana area.

The pursuit moved through Buena Park, Downey and East Los Angeles while the traffic was light. The driver was slowed in the Burbank area where motorists had slowed near a construction zone.

The pursuit lasted more than an hour and reached speeds of 70 mph, ending around 11:15 p.m.

No information identifying the suspect or any charges he may face have been released by police. The pursuit is under investigation.
