Man pursued by San Antonio police drives directly to jail

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — San Antonio police say a driver being pursued by officers refused to pull over and instead drove himself directly to jail.

And when he arrived there, authorities say he got out and tried to run up the stairs to the jail.

Police say the incident began Sunday night with a call for officers to investigate a domestic dispute, and when they arrived at the residence the man already had left. They had a description of his car and patrol officers spotted him and tried to pull him over. That’s when he began his drive to the jail.

Authorities say the man, whose name hasn’t been released, had an outstanding warrant for driving while intoxicated. He now faces additional charges for refusing to pull over his vehicle.
