EL MONTE — Sheriff’s deputies arrested two Baldwin Park men — one of them a wanted parolee — following a brief car chase Friday, officials said.
Adrian Aguiniga, 25, was booked for felony evading of police, while his passenger, Luis Diaz, 26, was being held for violating parole, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Ignacio Somoano said.
A deputy saw the car driving recklessly and erratically and tried to pull it over about 3:25 p.m. at Santa Anita Avenue and West Hondo Parkway, he said.
Aguiniga failed to pull over and led deputies on a short pursuit south on Santa Anita Avenue and north on Kings Row, Somoano said.
The driver of the fleeing vehicle drove erratically at times, ignoring stop signs and traveling on the wrong side of the road, however the chase came to an end with the driver pulling over and surrendering on Vista Lane.
Aguiniga and Diaz were arrested, while another passenger in the car was released at the scene, Somoano said.
