Man arrested following pursuit with police
A Las Alamos man was arrested Saturday night in connec-
tion with leading police on a pursuit in Pacifica.
David Allen McCoy, 33, was arrested on suspicion of
felony reckless evading a police officer and misdemeanor
possession of a controlled substance, according to the
Pacifica Police Department.
On Saturday at 11:10 p.m. an officer attempted to conduct
a traffic stop on a vehicle traveling south on Highway 1.
Police said the driver, later identified as McCoy, failed to
yield, turned onto eastbound Linda Mar Boulevard and accel-
erated in an attempt to evade the officer.
The pursuit made its way onto northbound Highway 1
when McCoy's vehicle crashed into a center barrier just
north of Reina Del Mar Avenue, police said.
The vehicle then ran off the road and into heavy foliage
near a Pacifica Police Department station.
McCoy was subsequently taken into custody. REUTERS
