An effort to stop a man for a traffic violation led to a car chase, and then a foot chase before the driver was finally arrested with the help of a police K-9 in Oxnard.
It started just after 12:30 Saturday morning, near Hemlock, and Ukiah Streets. The officer tried to pull the vehicle over, but the driver refused to stop. After a half hour chase through the streets of Oxnard, the driver smashed into a light pole near Redwood, and “C” Streets.
Police say Francisco Javier Domingez then tried to flee on foot, but the 25 year old man was caught with the use of a police dog. Police say the Oxnard man told them he was fleeing because he was wanted for a felony parole violation.
