A suspect was arrested after he led Fontana Police Department officers on an early-morning pursuit throughout Fontana on Oct. 6.

An officer attempted to stop the driver of a gray Honda Accord in the area of Slover Avenue and Cedar Avenue for a traffic violation. When the driver failed to stop, a pursuit ensued northbound on Cedar.

The suspect entered the westbound Interstate 10 Freeway and then exited onto northbound Sierra Avenue. The pursuit continued northbound on Sierra, and the driver turned eastbound onto Valencia Avenue.

But at that point, the driver lost control of his car and collided with the curb and sheared off the right front tire of his car in the 17100 block of Valencia, where the pursuit ended.

No police officers were injured in the pursuit.

Authorities said that 26-year-old Juan Martinez was arrested on charges of felony evading and DUI. A female passenger in the car was not arrested.

San Bernardino County Fire Department medics treated the suspect for a complaint of pain and he was transported to a local hospital.

The Fontana P.D. is handling the investigation.
