GARDEN GROVE — Police have arrested a known gang member following an alleged incident of reckless driving in a stolen vehicle.
On the night of Sunday, August 11, an officer tried to stop a reckless driver in the area of Brookhurst Street and Garden Grove Boulevard, giving chase after the driver failed to yield.
Eventually, however, the driver collided with the curb and, from there, took off on foot. He was quickly apprehended. A second person who’d been in the vehicle is reportedly still at large.
While his name has not been released, police say he’s a known gang member and have booked him on suspicion of DUI, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a stolen firearm (which was thrown from the vehicle during the pursuit and later recovered), and several other charges.
