An attempted stop of a Honda Accord with missing license plates in Ceres resulted in a Friday morning high-speed chase that ended in the arrest of the driver in Stockton.
At 9:10 a.m., Officer Freddie Ortiz attempted to stop a white Honda Accord when it failed to ran a stoplight at Hatch and Herndon roads. The driver, Dmaureay Martin, 20, of Modesto, turned north on Herndon Road and refused to yield to emergency lights and siren and a pursuit went onto northbound Highway 99 at speeds of approximately 100 mph. Martin finally pulled over and was taken into custody in Stockton by the California Highway Patrol.
Officers found alcohol inside the car at arrest. Martin was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of evading a peace officer recklessly in a motor vehicle, driving on a suspended license, littering on a public roadway, and possession of alcohol under the age of 21 years old.
