Police use taser to stop suspected drunk driver

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A police pursuit ends in the East Village with a suspect being tased.

Officers tried to stop the car around 16th Street and K Street, but the driver refused to pull over. At one point, the suspect finally stopped long enough to let a female passenger out of the car.

The chase ended when he drove into a dead end at 800 17th street. Officers say he turned the car around and looked like he might take off again and that's when they shouted warnings. Then, officers used a taser to disable him.

The suspect was taken into an ambulance, wearing handcuffs. He will be evaluated for DUI.
