After attempting to elude Sheriff’s deputies Monday evening, June 17, Ivan Chi of San Diego, California was arrested.

Chi was driving a vehicle near the intersection of Crater Lake Parkway and South Sixth Street at about 6p.m. when Sheriff’s deputies witnessed him making a turn and lane changes without using his signals.

Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, but Chi failed to yield and led deputies south on Summers Lane, and eventually onto Laverne Avenue. Deputies maintained a moderate pace in order to ensure the safety of the public as they pursued Chi. Once on Laverne Avenue Chi jumped out of his moving vehicle and took off on foot through several residences’ backyards.
