The San Diego County chase ends in a standoff on the 5 Freeway in Anaheim

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) — A suspect in a stolen car has been arrested after leading authorities in a chase from San Diego County to Anaheim, where he surrendered Monday night following a standoff on the 5 Freeway.

The chase began just before 6 p.m. in the Chula Vista area after the suspect was allegedly rammed into a squad car, authorities said.

AIR7 HD was over the chase around 7:30 p.m. when the suspect was on the northbound 5 Freeway in Anaheim. Traffic was light while the driver fled California Highway Patrol officers.

The suspect’s car eventually slowed, possibly due to a successful spike streak, and stopped near the Beach Boulevard exit.

After the suspect refused to surrender in a standoff lasting several minutes, CHP apparently fired pepper balls at the car.

The suspect had to get out of the vehicle and appeared to be coughing and having difficulty breathing. He then stood on the roof of the car to avoid a K-9 that crashed into the vehicle.

The man soon gave up and several CHP officers took him into custody around 7:45 p.m

Authorities in Chula Vista say the suspect’s car was stolen.
