DUI suspect arrested following police chase

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A DUI suspect is in custody following an overnight police pursuit.

The chase started around 1:30 a.m. on State Route 163 near Genesee, when officers noticed the 52-year-old driver swerving across lanes. They attempted to pull him over, but he just kept driving.

Authorities say the suspect was driving at normal speeds and may have been too drunk to know he was being followed.

The chase finally ended at Mira Mesa Boulevard near Black Mountain Road, when the driver stopped at a red light and got out of the car.

He now faces charges including DUI and misdemeanor evading.

Police say the man has a record of prior DUIs and is already on probation.
