High Speed Car and Foot Chase Leads to DUI Arrest

Posted By Thomas V. Wallin || 16-May-2011

A 43-year-old Aromas resident was arrested for driving under the influence after a high-speed chase.

According to the Monterey Herald, the chase began around 3pm when officers received a tip that a map was driving under the influence of drugs. Officers followed the man’s green 1974 GMC truck from the 101 freeway in to the Monterey Vacation RV Park. The driver then drove off, leading police on a chase onto the 101 freeway where he drove his truck into a ditch and began running across the highway and into the field where officers proceeded to try to find the man for 2 hours.   The man however left a female companion, who was later arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance, and his dog in his truck and officers ended up finding prescription drugs, used hypodermic needles and the man’s wallet which led officers back to the Vacation RV Park where he was staying.
