Pursuit Ends When Sheriff's Vehicles Surround Suspect's Car in Maywood

A domestic violence call sparked the hour-long pursuit

A pursuit full of twists and turns came to an end Wednesday evening when the suspect was surrounded by law enforcement vehicles. 

Deputies with the Orange County Sheriff's Department responded to a domestic violence call around 6:40 p.m. on Rockview Drive in unincorporated Anaheim. 

When the deputies arrived, the suspect had already left. A deputy spotted the man's SUV a few blocks away and tried to pull him over, but the suspect did not stop, sheriff's officials said. 

The driver of the silver SUV led deputies on an hour-long pursuit along surface streets and multiple freeways and eventually back onto surface streets. 

Aerial footage from NewsChopper 4 showed the driver blowing through stop signs and red lights and doing several U-turns in traffic. 

The pursuit ended around 7:50 p.m. when officers surrounded the suspect with their vehicles at the intersection of East 60th Street and Atlantic Boulevard in Maywood. The suspect's SUV collided with a law enforcement vehicle. 

Deputies pulled the domestic violence suspect out of the SUV and took him into custody.
