PIT Maneuver Used To Stop OC Pursuit Suspect

ORANGE, Calif. (KTLA) — A suspect led officers on a slow speed pursuit Friday in what started as a failure to yield violation.

The chase began just before 11 a.m., according to a CHP spokesperson.

The driver appeared to give up after leading authorities through the streets of Orange, Brea and Yorba Linda in a gray Honda CR-V.

However, when officers attempted to surround the car, the suspect drove off through a gap in the patrol cars.

A short time later the suspect finally did pull over, but sped off again when authorities approached.

Officers eventually used a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle at Prospect Street and Walnut Avenue in the city of Orange.

The unidentified suspect was taken into custody just before noon.
