Vehicle Pursuit and Arrest

On 07-06-12 at approximately 0014 hours, a Fountain Valley Police Officer observed a white Toyota 4Runner parked on the shoulder of southbound Brookhurst on the 405 freeway overpass. The vehicle appeared to have recent front end collision damage. When the officer parked behind the 4Runner to render assistance, it drove off southbound Brookhurst and ran a red light at Talbert while making a U-turn onto northbound Brookhurst. The Officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop, and the driver failed to yield, which turned into a vehicle pursuit. The driver ran several red lights and nearly collided with other vehicles. The pursuit entered into Westminster and Garden Grove. The driver ultimately stopped at Hazard and Brookhurst and was taken into custody without incident. The driver, identified as Ha Tran out of Garden Grove, was arrested for felony evading and possession of narcotic paraphernalia and was booked into Orange County Jail.
