Spikes halt DUI chase suspect near Mojave

June 5, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
A suspected drunk driver led officers on a high speed pursuit this weekend through several high desert towns.

It started when a California Highway Patrol officer tried to pull over a speeding driver on State Route 65.

When the driver refused to stop, officers followed him southbound on Interstate 5 and then north on the 14 Freeway.

A spike strip north of Rosamond slowed the driver down, and he went off the road north of Mojave.

Officers shot the vehicle's windows out and arrested the driver.
