Police arrested a Thousand Oaks man suspected of domestic violence after a freeway pursuit. According to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, they received a domestic violence report from Camarillo and responded.
Deputies spotted the suspect and began pursuit on the Ventura Freeway. The suspect traveled through Encino, Van Nuys and Studio City before exiting in North Hollywood. The suspect then broke off the pursuit by stopping in a North Hollywood apartment complex parking lot. He had planned to stay for a weekend with a friend who lives in the complex.
Initially, the man refused to exit his vehicle, but after about 10 minutes, he stepped out of the car. Deputies arrested him and returned him to Ventura County. He faces a misdemeanor count of evading a police officer, and was released on his own recognizance. He returns to court on September 25 for matters related to the case.
