Unconscious Man Detained After South Bay Car, Foot Chase

Police in San Jose early Tuesday managed to corral a man who evaded authorities during a car and foot pursuit, according to Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Rich Glennon.

The chase began at roughly 1:45 a.m. when sheriff's deputies attempted to stop a male driver, but the man refused to pull over, Glennon said.

After leading police through the South Bay, the man eventually stopped his car in front of a residence on Lynview Drive in East San Jose, according to Glennon. He then bolted into the neighborhood on foot, hopped a fence and tried to hide in a backyard.

Police later located the man, who was unconscious at the time, in front of a nearby home on Quimby Road, Glennon said. It is not clear why the man was passed out when police found him.

The man was unarmed when he was detained, but he did have warrants out for his arrest, according to Glennon.

A female passenger was also taken into custody, Glennon added.
