Chase involving stolen car ends with an arrest

PLEASANT GROVE — Police officers responding to a domestic-violence call Monday ended up on a chase that began in Pleasant Grove and ended with an arrest in Sandy.

Officers followed to driver to Orem, where they trapped him in a cul-de-sac. To escape, the driver drove through a yard and rammed a squad car.

The man then fled to I-15, where he headed north.

The chase ended just north of the 10600 South offramp in Sandy, where the suspect's tires were damaged by police spikes. The car was stolen, and police say they found evidence inside linking the man to several thefts.

A 19-year-old Clearfield man was arrested.
