On Thursday, police arrested a 30-year-old man from the city of Phoenix after he tried to flee from officers after stealing a vehicle and crashing.
Police say that Jorge Rios had been weaving into the bike lane while driving at 11:00 PM. When an officer decided to run his license plate he found that the car was stolen and tried to pull him over. However, instead of stopping for officers Rios continued to drive at a high rate of speed through stop signs as well as red lights.
Officers and police helicopters followed him until he crashed. He then tried to flee the vehicle, but fell to the ground.
According to law enforcement officers, the car had been stolen in Phoenix and a background check revealed that Rios was driving on a suspended license. Inside of the vehicle police found a pipe and methamphetamines in Rios' pocket. They decided that he was driving under the influence after conducting field sobriety tests.
Now, he is facing charges of theft, possession of drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, DUI and driving with a suspended license.
