    Police Pursuit in Costa Mesa

    Police briefly pursued a suspect from Huntington Beach, into Costa Mesa Friday afternoon. 

    The chase was reported about 12:45 p.m., and was initiated by Huntington Beach Police Department.

    Police backed off of the ground pursuit as the driver maneuvered busy streets at a relatively high rate of speed. 

    The silver sedan continued to drive at a high rate of speed before slowing to about 65 mph on the freeway heading into San Juan Capistrano around 1:15 p.m. in an effort to evade police.

    The person was wanted on for a misdemeanor probation violation stemming from a vehicle code incident, police said.

    Officials said they knew the identity of the driver and would locate him at a later date.
