On May 14, 2022: A Monterey Police Officer was on patrol when he observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed. The officer paced the vehicle in his patrol car and noted it was traveling at a speed in excess of the speed limit. The officer performed a traffic stop on the vehicle for traveling at an unsafe speed and the vehicle yielded. The officer obtained the drivers information. When the officer returned to his patrol vehicle to check the driver’s information, the driver suddenly exited his vehicle and began to flee on foot. The officer began to pursue the suspect on foot, while remaining calm and composed while giving orders for the suspect to stop and updating dispatch on his location. Ultimately, the suspect surrendered to the officer and was found to have four outstanding warrants for his arrest.
