SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – A suspect is in custody Wednesday morning after a chaotic chase through Lemon Grove.
The chase started around 11 p.m. Tuesday on SR 94 near downtown San Diego and ended in Lemon Grove. Once off the highway, the suspect drove in circles and lead police down Broadway to Palm and then back to Lemon Grove Avenue.
