Concord police arrested a 25-year-old woman Saturday after she allegedly took an undercover police car and led officers on a high-speed pursuit.
About 6:24 a.m. Concord police received a report that someone had taken an unmarked police car from a driveway in the Clayton Valley area, said Sgt. Matt Morrissey. About 15 minutes later, a Concord officer spotted the vehicle on Treat Boulevard and Clayton Road and attempted to pull the driver over.
"She did not want to be stopped," Morrissey said. She then led police on a pursuit through Pleasant Hill and then onto Highway 242 with speeds reaching up to 110 mph.
On westbound Highway 242, she struck another vehicle and continued on. No one was injured in that crash.
She abandoned the car near Orinda and took off on foot, Morrissey said. Officers and a K-9 unit found her in some underbrush. When she refused to cooperate, the dog was released and bit her.
The driver, Angelique Marie Perez, was arrested. Morrissey said she was allegedly under the influence of a controlled substance and that officers also found methamphetamine in her possession.
Good doggie! Good doggie!
