Sirens blared through the cities of Concord, Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek early Saturday morning, during a high speed police chase that ended back in Concord, where it began, around 2:45 a.m. with a collision on Detroit Avenue.
The chase, which at times reached speeds of around 90 miles per hour, lasted close to 30 minutes and ended with an intended collision orchestrated by two Concord police officers on Detroit Avenue and the subsequent arrest of the suspect.
A police officer used the front end of his car to bump the back of the suspect's, making it spin when speeds were safe enough to do so, said Concord Police Sgt. Cody Harrison.
In addition to two police cars, the suspect's four-door sedan collided with a citizen's car near the Elephant Bar on Willow Pass Road.
The suspect was transported to the hospital for a K-9 bite received during the arrest which, Sgt. Harrison told Patch, was resisted "violently."
Police said the suspect also threw narcotics out of the window during the chase and was likely under the influence of illegal substances.
"I was in bed, sound asleep, when I heard all the sirens," said Melissa Miller, who lives in the 1400 Detroit Avenue block where the incident ended. "Then I come out and see all the neighbors and all of these lights and everything. It was unbelievable."
Check back with Patch Saturday for an update to this story.
If you want to meet Ben, the K-9 who led the arrest, make sure to show up to Petfood Express on Ygnacio Valley Road, Saturday and Sunday for an 11 a.m. demo. CPD's K-9 unit will be on hand for demonstrations
