3 men arrested after wild police chase ends in Orange County

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A wild police chase led to the arrest of three men Tuesday morning. CHP officers chased a car riding on bare rims and speeding for miles on northbound Interstate 5.

The chase started around midnight in Golden Hill when officers were alerted to a possible vandalism suspect in a silver car.

The driver did not pull over, but instead took off speeding on I-5, evading police.

The CHP laid out spike strips and flattened three tires in Oceanside, but the driver kept going on bare rims all the way to San Clemente.

"We followed the vehicle to Orange County, attempted to spike it several times... Successfully spiked it a couple of times and eventually the car became disabled here where we're at," said Sgt. Matt Boothe. "The driver told us that this was his mother's rental car."

Three men in their 20's were arrested at a gas station.

Officers found pills, pot and other narcotics in the car and one of the men has an outstanding warrant.

The driver is also facing evading charges.

No one was hurt.
