A driver faces charges of felony evading and driving under the influence after a high-speed pursuit that began in Carlsbad and ended more than 25 miles away.

The suspect drove to a home on 49th Street in Webster, the address on the car’s registration, officers said.

However, the suspect is not the registered owner of the vehicle.

Around 1 a.m. Thursday, a California Highway Patrol officer spotted a Dodge truck traveling southbound at about 110 mph on Interstate 5 in the Carlsbad area.

After the officer pulled over the driver near La Costa, he got out of his car to talk with the driver. That’s when the suspect sped off.

The CHP officer pursued the driver.

Other law enforcement officers attempted to stop the pursuit using spike strips but that didn't work.

When the vehicle arrived in Webster, a K-9 unit stopped the driver from going any farther. He was taken into custody and the residents of the home were interviewed by police.
