VISTA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a man fleeing San Diego County sheriff's deputies made one big mistake — he tried to escape by climbing into jail.
The San Diego Union-Tribune (http://bit.ly/29OPAOX ) says the chase began around 2 a.m. Tuesday after a police officer in Oceanside tried to pull over a Nissan sedan for a minor traffic violation.
The car didn't stop and a chase began into nearby Vista, where sheriff's deputies took over.
Authorities say the driver meandered through the city for nearly 20 minutes before pulling into the parking lot of the Vista Jail.
Authorities say the driver got out, ran and climbed over a fence into the area where prisoners are taken for booking.
And that's just what happened. The 35-year-old man was arrested and booked for resisting and obstructing police.
