Woman flees from deputies in Arcadia

ARCADIA — A woman escaped Wednesday after fleeing sheriff’s deputies during a traffic stop, authorities said.
The incident began just before noon in the area of Baldwin and Naomi avenues, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Tom McNeal said.
Deputies pulled over a dark green Honda Civic with a license plate number of 5CBF181 because the driver, described only as a woman, appeared to be swerving, McNeal said.
After running the license plate number, officials found the license plate had been reported “lost or stolen,” the lieutenant said. Such plates on a car often indicate the vehicle is stolen.
After initially pulling over, the woman accelerated away from deputies and a brief chase began, McNeal said.
After pursuing the Honda southbound on Baldwin Avenue for just over a minute and a half, he said, officials ordered an end to the chase out of concern for public safety.
In addition to the female driver, two male passengers were also inside the car, McNeal said.
