Woman Leads San Diego Police on Lengthy Pursuit After Alleged Restraining Order Violation

A woman, accused of violating a restraining order filed by her ex-husband, initiated a 45-minute road chase from La Jolla to Emerald Hills on Friday. The pursuit began at approximately 4:15 p.m. in the 6600 block of Vista Del Mar, near Windansea Beach, and the residence of the 58-year-old suspect’s former spouse, according to the San Diego Police Department (SDPD).

Upon police attempts to stop her vehicle, the woman refused to yield and headed south, navigating through rush-hour traffic at moderate speeds but disregarding stop signs and red lights, reported SDPD Officer Darius Jamsetjee.

The pursuit led the woman through the Mount Soledad area and various streets in Pacific Beach before she entered Interstate 5, making her way towards downtown San Diego. Officers pursued her both in cruisers and from the air using an SDPD helicopter.

Exiting the freeway at Sassafras Street in the Middletown area, the suspect continued south on several streets, including Kettner Boulevard, Hawthorn Street, Pacific Highway, and Harbor Drive. Subsequently, she proceeded to state Route 94 via G Street, fleeing eastward through Grant Hill, Mount Hope, and Chollas View.

The chase came to an end when the suspect’s Jeep Grand Cherokee ran out of gas and coasted to a stop near Kelton Road just before 5 p.m. The woman then exited her vehicle and attempted to cross both sides of the freeway, causing motorists to brake and swerve. Officers swiftly apprehended her on the north shoulder of the freeway without further incident.

No accidents or injuries were reported in the course of the pursuit, and the identity of the suspect was not immediately disclosed.
