“This is what a CHP patrol vehicle looks like when officers from the San Luis Obispo (SLO) Area CHP takes a dangerous driver off of your roadways.
From 10/2/2020 to 10/5/2020, deputies and officers from: SLO County Sheriff’s Department, Arroyo Grande Police Department, and Grover Beach Police Department were involved in separate vehicle pursuits for various violations with a suspect who was driving a red Honda Civic.
On 10/7/2020, CHP dispatch was notified of a hit-and-run crash that occurred on northbound US 101 at the Fourth Street off ramp in Pismo Beach. As CHP officers were responding to the call, officers from the Grover Beach Police Department located the red Honda within their city and maintained visual contact while CHP officers got in position.
The driver of the Honda entered into the unincorporated area of the County as CHP Officer Maselli positioned his patrol vehicle behind the Honda and attempted to affect an enforcement stop on the driver of the Honda.
Once again, the driver of the Honda attempted to evade law enforcement. A vehicle pursuit was initiated. The pursuit immobilization technique (PIT) maneuver was utilized by Officer Maselli.
The suspect driving the Honda lost control of the vehicle and officers on scene were able to take the suspect into custody. Thankfully, there were no injuries to law enforcement or the suspect. The suspect was charged for the following violations: felony evading, driving under the influence of drugs, and hit-and-run.”
