SAN LEANDRO -- San Leandro police have arrested a man who they say led them on a chase through city streets, hitting several cars and then ramming a police cruiser.

Jason Stern, 33, failed to stop when officers tried to pull him over in the 500 block of Marina Boulevard near Alvarado Street at 10:40 p.m. Thursday, Lt. Randy Brandt said Saturday night.

Officers pursued the car for about a mile, Brandt said. The driver struck several parked cars and then hit a patrol car. "It was kind of a dead end," Brandt said. "The officers were on foot and he was still trying to get away."

Police said Stern drove at the officers and then tried to run away. No officers were injured.

Stern is being held on bail of $309,000 and faces charges of felony evading and with hitting a police car. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court on Monday.
