A teenager was arrested early Wednesday after the Able-1 police helicopter spotted him driving an SUV at a high rate of speed on Interstate 680 near 30th Street.
Police said Joshua Holmes, 18, was spotted leaving the still-moving silver SUV at 14th and Fort Streets after the vehicle traveled through a fence and struck a tree around 2:30 a.m.
Officers arrested Holmes near 14th and Camden Streets.
Holmes was arrested on suspicion of theft by receiving more than $1,500, obstructing an officer, willful reckless driving, leaving the scene of a property-damage accident, having no operator's license and two misdemeanor warrants, police said.
In another case, about 4:45 a.m., police lost track of a burglary suspect near 108th Street and West Maple Road after the driver reached speeds of 100 mph. The driver was behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Trailblazer when he raced through a red light near 108th and West Maple at the high speed.
The pursuit ended near 106th and Parker Streets.
He was suspected of breaking into a chiropractor's office in a strip mall in the area.
