    An officer said a Jeep Cherokee was spotted weaving in and out of traffic. As police got closer to the vehicle, officers said they learned the car was stolen. They tried to pull the suspect over but ended up in a pursuit.

    A spike strip was rolled onto the road and successfully popped three tires on the stolen vehicle.

    "One of our units was able to deploy spike stripes which made the vehicle stop,” said Lt. Paul Rorrison with San Diego police. “The suspect then bailed out of the car and began to run away.”

    Officers arrested the suspect driver. He was placed in to custody and faces felony evasion charges.

    No one was injured.
