Chase ends with police struggle & K9 takedown

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A suspected car thief is under arrest after leading police on a chase down Interstate 8. 

When officers tried to pull over the stolen Honda at a gas station in Ocean Beach, the driver took off towards the eastbound I-8.

Spike strips were used at the freeway entrance. The driver continued for about a quarter mile before crashing into an embankment.

"At that point the police dog was deployed because the subject was not compliant. The police dog did contact the driver, initiating a bit to the suspect. At that point the suspect began to fight violently with the officers," said San Diego police Lt. Paul Rorrison.

He was arrested then taken to UCSD hospital with minor injuries.
