A San Jose man led law enforcement on a high-speed pursuit through Pleasanton on Monday night before ultimately being apprehended, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The incident began shortly after 11 p.m., when CHP officers attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle without license plates on Interstate 580 near Hacienda Drive.
The driver, later identified as 23-year-old Aaron Daniels, did not pull over and instead sped up to 110 mph on the freeway, according to CHP Officer Howard Walton.
The driver merged onto Interstate 680 southbound and then exited at Bernal Avenue, according to Walton. He continued onto Bernal eastbound before making a U-turn at Vineyard Avenue and heading back on Bernal, at which point he was driving up to 80 mph, running red lights and stop signs and passing drivers on the shoulder, according to Walton.
After getting back on Bernal Avenue, the driver allegedly made a right turn into a resident's driveway west of Vineyard Avenue, and while doing so, lost control of his car and sideswiped a car parked in the driveway.
The man then exited the vehicle and fled on foot, according to Walton. CHP officers, along with the Pleasanton Police Department and Alameda County Sheriff's Office, set up a perimeter and brought in a CHP helicopter to look for the fleeing driver.
After nearly a half-hour of searching, a Pleasanton police officer found Daniels hiding under bushes at a nearby residence, Walton said. Daniels was taken into custody without further incident.
Daniels had outstanding warrants and is facing charges of felony reckless evading, obstructing officer duties, driving on a suspended license and hit-and-run, according to Walton.
He was booked into Santa Rita Jail and was still being held on $85,000 bail as of Friday.
