Driver Arrested After Brief, Reckless Pursuit

The driver of a red Ford Mustang led Glendora Police officers on a brief high-speed pursuit this morning.

The chase wound through neighborhoods and a narrow alleyway in the north potion of Glendora at speeds around 60 miles per hour. Officers cancelled the pursuit due to the suspect’s reckless driving, but found him and his occupant later and arrested him.

Around 7:37 a.m., officers on patrol witnessed the driver whipping donuts at the Carlyle E. Linder Equestrian Park, 1000 N. Glendora Mountain Rd. Officers attempted to stop the driver, but he failed to yield and officers gave chase, said Lt. Matt Williams of Glendora Police.

The suspect ran stop signs as he traveled west on Sierra Madre Avenue from Glendora Mountain Road, south on Cullen, west on Leadora Avenue and south on Minnesota Avenue.

The suspect lost control of his vehicle at one point and drove over a curb and part of a resident’s front yard on East Meda Avenue. No property damage was reported, Williams said.

Officers eventually cancelled the pursuit in an alleyway near Vista Bonita Avenue.

The pursuit lasted around two minutes, Williams said.

Around 7:50 a.m., officers located and detained two subjects matching the description of the pursuit suspects in the 100 block of North Vista Bonita Avenue. The man identified as the driver admitted to leading officers on a chase and said he did so because he was scared, Williams said.

Arrested was Anthony Oehring, 23, from Chino. He was booked on suspicion of felony reckless evading. Oehring’s occupant, his girlfriend, was interviewed by officers and eventually released.
