Parolee leads Pismo Beach police on high speed chase

May 8, 2012

Pismo Beach police arrested a Fresno parolee after he led them on a high-speed chase on U.S. Highway 101 on Monday morning.

The pursuit began when police responding to a report of a stolen vehicle spotted  Shane Calhoun, 23, driving the car northbound on Price Street. When officers attempted to pull Calhoun over, he sped onto northbound  U.S. Highway 101, at times reaching speeds of more than 120 mph.

Just north of the Avila Beach Drive off ramp, Calhoun lost control of the car and crashed.

Police arrested Calhoun on suspicion of vehicle theft and felony evasion of a police officer. He was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on a no-bail parole violation.
