High-speed pursuit from San Diego ends in standoff near LAX; person in custody
A high-speed pursuit from San Diego that ended with a person fleeing on foot and into the brush on the side of the road Monday morning was under control by about 9:30 a.m. as police swarmed to find the suspect.
About 90 minutes later, an unidentified woman walked into a local police station wearing a backpack and entered a room marked “women only” and sat with police inside for about a half-hour until she was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, possession of a weapon and outstanding warrants.
The police did not provide any information on the nature of the arrest or the woman’s suspected charges.
A San Diego Police Department spokesman did not immediately return a call for comment.
Police said the chase ended about 1 miles from the airport Monday morning when they tried to block off a narrow access road that cuts through a neighborhood.
The chase began about 6:45 a.m. in a residential area on West El Cajon Boulevard between San Diego State University and El Camino Real. Police reported spotting a white Dodge Charger that matched the description from a stolen car they had recovered earlier.
A suspect, later identified as Darryl Lee Davis Jr., 54, of La Mesa was fleeing on foot in a residential area, police said. Davis was described as a white man in his 50s or 60s with a beard and long black hair.
Davis was driving the Charger with a California license plate at a rate of 85 mph as the pursuit moved along El Cajon Boulevard, police said.
The pursuit reached speeds of up to 110 mph before Davis turned into a residential area of a neighborhood and went into the brush on the edge of the road as police closed in on him, police said.
San Diego police did not immediately release the speed of the pursuit, but did say the chase ended shortly after 1:15 p.m. when they tried to block off a road that cuts into the neighborhood.
