Instead, Balbirnie lead officers on a chase through Huntington Beach, Westminster and Seal Beach.  The OC Register states that after multiple requests and announcements for Balbirnie to exit the vehicle, officers used a tactic to break his windows to get him out; however, the driver continued to resist and began punching the K-9 that was being used.   Officers Tasered the driver and noticed that he was nude from the waist down; Balbirnie was taken into custody and booked at the OC Jail after he was treated for dog bites.
