Officers Pursue 61-Year-Old Driver Who Refuses to Stop

On May 19 at 9:49 p.m., officers from the City of Carlsbad Police Department attempted to stop a white Range Rover at Calle Barcelona and Paseo Avellano for a vehicle code violation.

The vehicle failed to stop for the Officers after they activated their emergency lights and siren.

The vehicle led officers on a pursuit and came to a stop on the off ramp of northbound Interstate 5 at La Costa Avenue.  Officers were able to deploy a tire deflation device under the tires of the vehicle. The vehicle began to move again where it subsequently ran over the device causing all its tires to deflate.

The female driver, who was the only person in the vehicle, was taken into custody.

The driver was identified as Emilie Manley from Carlsbad, a 61-year-old white female. She was cited and released for a misdemeanor violation of failure to yield to an emergency police vehicle, and she was released to the care of a local medical facility.
