A suspected DUI driver was slow to surrender following a high-speed pursuit that ended with a successful PIT maneuver in Riverside County Friday night.
The driver was initially wanted for driving under the influence and felony evading, according to the Ontario Police Department.
He was seen hitting speeds over 100 miles per hour on the 60 Freeway in Ontario, weaving dangerously and erratically through traffic around 10:30 p.m.
As the suspect exited the freeway at Market Street in Riverside, an officer executed a PIT maneuver, spinning the suspect’s vehicle around through an intersection, Sky5 footage showed.
Patrol cars immediately boxed in the vehicle as officers awaited the driver’s surrender. He didn’t, at first.
A K-9 unit and a SWAT Team vehicle later arrived on the scene as the suspect remained uncooperative.
At times, he was seen angrily gesturing inside the vehicle, punching the vehicle’s dashboard and throwing objects out of the window.
Officers first fired two rounds of tear gas into the suspect’s vehicle, but it wasn’t enough to chase him out. After another round, the suspect slowly climbed out of the driver’s side window before kneeling down and surrendering to officers.
