Driver Leads Monterey Park Police on Pursuit

By City News Service

A man was booked at the Monterey Park jail Monday after leading officers on a 10-minute pursuit from that city to neighboring Rosemead, a police sergeant said.

The pursuit began at about 1 a.m. at Potrero Grande and Arroyo drives and ended about 10 minutes later in the 8000 block of Whitmore Street in Rosemead, said Monterey Park police Sgt. Paul Yniguez .

Officers tried to get the driver to pull over after he committed a vehicle code violation, Yniguez said.

“He went through mostly residential streets and the car eventually went into a dead-end and the suspect tried to run,” the sergeant said.

The officers chased the suspect and he surrendered without incident or injury, Yniguez said.

The suspect was being booked into the jail on suspicion of evading and reckless driving, both felonies and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, he said.
