A 35-year-old man who was the subject of an arrest warrant was taken into custody Monday following a brief vehicle chase from Lemon Grove to Spring Valley.
Deputies on patrol in the area of Kempf Street and Lincoln Avenue saw a blue Toyota Corolla being driven by the suspect and attempted to pull him over near the intersection of Kempf Street and Broadway, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Jacob Klepach.
The suspect failed to yield for the patrol car, and a short vehicle pursuit ensued, Klepach said. The Toyota eventually stopped in the 9000 block of Kenwood Drive in Spring Valley and the suspect fled into a nearby apartment complex.
The suspect, later identified as Ronnie Lawrence, surrendered a short time later. He was arrested on the outstanding felony warrant and for “evading a peace officer with disregard to public safety,” Klepach said.
