CHP: Teens arrested after chase starting in Fairfield ends near Alamo

No injuries reported after nearly 40-minute pursuit

Authorities nabbed two teens who led law enforcement on a pursuit that started in Fairfield and went down freeways into Danville before ending near Alamo with the help of spike strips late Wednesday night, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesman.

The male driver and female passenger – whose names weren't released because they are juveniles – were taken into custody on suspicion of felony reckless evasion along with driving without a license, according to officer Dave Harvey, of the CHP's Solano area office.

The incident began in Fairfield near the truck scales on Interstate 80 when an officer spotted 2000 Volkswagen Jetta speeding around 11:05 p.m. Wednesday, Harvey said.

The driver failed to yield for the CHP and a pursuit ensued, continuing into Contra Costa County on I-680 and eventually into Danville, according to authorities.

The situation ended in the area of Danville Boulevard and Rudgear Road near Alamo when officers put spike strips down to stop the car and the teens were subsequently detained around 11:45 p.m., Harvey said.
