Domestic battery suspect leads police on high-speed chase before arrest

EL MONTE, Calif. (KABC) -- A man wanted for domestic battery led police on a chase from El Monte to Baldwin Park before he crashed and was arrested by police, authorities from the El Monte Police Department said.

Cesar Bobadilla was sought by police after he fled the scene of a domestic battery incident on his girlfriend April 16.

An El Monte officer spotted the 23-year-old's black 1995 Acura Integra shortly before 8 p.m. on Saturday near Parkway Drive and Elliot Avenue in El Monte and attempted a traffic stop, police said.

As the officer attempted to stop the suspect, Bobadilla then sped up and fled at a high rate of speed into the city of Baldwin Park, according to El Monte PD.

Authorities said Bobadilla drove erratically until he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree near Los Angeles Street and Bresee Avenue. The suspect then fled on foot and officers gave chase until he was located in the 13900 block of Belgate Street in Baldwin Park.

Police later found the black Acura was a stolen vehicle.

Bobadilla was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries from the crash. He was expected to be OK and later booked for several charges, including felony evading, hit-and-run, resisting arrest and unlawful taking of a vehicle.
