An 18-year-old man was arrested Friday after leading deputies on a chase in a stolen car in Lake Elsinore, the sheriff's department reported.
Shane Michael Lehr of Wildomar was arrested around 2 a.m. following a pursuit that began near the intersection of Corydon Road and Union Street, according to sheriff's Sgt. David Cardoza.
He said a patrol unit spotted a brown Mini Cooper cruising the area and ran the plate, which revealed the car had been reported stolen Thursday from a Lake Elsinore residence.
"When the officers attempted to initiate a traffic enforcement stop on the Mini Cooper, the driver failed to yield, and a vehicle pursuit was initiated," Cardoza said.
Lehr traveled a little over a mile before losing control of the car on Stoneman Street, the sergeant said.
Lehr was booked into the Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta on suspicion of auto theft, burglary and felony evading, with bail set at $100,000.
