Early morning high speed chase on I-805 south

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A high speed chase on Interstate 805 ends with the arrest of a suspect.

It happened around 12:30 a.m. Thursday, when the California Highway Patrol blocked all lanes of traffic on I-805 south to clean up an earlier accident.

A man busted through the barricade and continued at a high speed as officers tried to stop him.

"Vehicle starts to slow down as if it was going to yield and then speeds up as it exits Market Street. That's when the pursing unit attempted a pit maneuver on the vehicle and disabled the vehicle here on Market Street just west of 805," Sgt. Joseph Aboy with the CHP.

The suspect was then taken into custody without incident, although the CHP is investigating a possible DUI. No injuries have been reported.
