DUBLIN -- Officers arrested a man they say led them on a 35-minute chase Tuesday afternoon from Concord to Dublin after he refused to pull over for speeding, according to the California Highway Patrol.
At 12:01 p.m., CHP officers tried to pull over a red Chevrolet Camaro they spotted speeding in the area of Highway 242 in Concord, and the driver took off southbound toward the Interstate 680 interchange, Officer Kevin Bartlett said.
Authorities trailed him from Highway 242 to I-680 for over 20 miles before the man got out of the car at St. Patrick Way in Dublin and tried to run away.
Officers caught the man within five minutes and immediately took him into custody, Bartlett said. The suspect, who has not been identified, was the only person in the vehicle.
It was not immediately known whether or not the chase ended in a crash, though witnesses reported the vehicle may have clipped someone in Danville, Bartlett said. No injuries were reported in the incident.
Investigators were trying to determine what caused the man to evade police, since officers said that his only known offense was speeding, Bartlett said. No roads have been closed for authorities to conduct their investigation.
