King City police and Monterey County Sheriffs were busy November 17 after chasing a man throughout the streets and freeways of King City. Their actions successfully led to an arrest of a man who has had six convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol in the past 10 years.
The incident occurred when officers initiated a traffic stop at Broadway Street and San Lorenzo just after 9:30 p.m. for a truck being driven on the wrong side of the road, according to the police report. Officers made contact with Robert Holguin, 46, of Sacramento, who exited his truck and became aggressive towards the officer.
After being told by the officer to get back into his truck, he complied, but then fired up the truck and fled, getting onto Highway 101 at the Canal Street exit, heading southbound before exited at First Street, where deputies from the Monterey County Sheriff’s Department joined in the pursuit. The chase went down First Street to Division before ending at San Lorenzo and Pearl Streets.
Holguin was arrested and booked on charges of felony reckless evading a police officer, obstructing an officer, driving on a suspended license revoked for DUI and fourth or more DUI conviction within ten years.
According to King City Police Department Captain Bruce Miller, “Holguin had six prior DUIs in the past ten years.”
“We do not need people like this putting others in jeopardy, so I am glad we were able to detain him before someone was hurt. We are here to protect our city.”
