OAKLAND (CBS SF) — An early morning high-speed pursuit that began in Oakland ended nearly 80 miles later on a bridge in San Joaquin County, authorities said.

The California Highway Patrol said the pursuit began around 1 a.m. on eastbound Highway 24 in Oakland when a suspect’s vehicle refused to pull over for a traffic stop.

With a CHP helicopter overhead, the suspect transitioned onto I-680 northbound traveling at a high rate of speed. The pursuit then continued into neighboring San Joaquin County where the sedan was halted on a bridge and the male suspect taken into custody at gunpoint.

No further details were immediately available.

  1. Of course, since “the suspect” is not white, no description was given.

    Using SUV as an escape vehicle is just stupid, but stupid people do stupid things.
