SAN DIEGO — Police arrested a domestic violence suspect Sunday after he led officers on a brief chase before crashing in Ocean Beach.
San Diego police said the chase started in Hillcrest around 5:50 p.m. Sunday after they got a call about a man involved in a fight. The pursuit ended 25 minutes later near the intersection of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and Niagara Avenue, where police said the man crashed his car.
A police spokesperson said the 28-year-old man initially refused to surrender after the crash. Police told employees at a nearby Rite Aid to lock their front doors as they called for him to come out of the car.
Officers fired pepper balls at him and the man surrendered. He is now in custody and his identify has not yet been released.
