The pursuit lasted about two minutes, covering a distance of about one mile and staying at reasonable speeds.

Based on the totality of the circumstances, officers determined that Pulido was under the influence of alcohol.

Pulido was arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of flight from a peace officer and driving under the influence of alcohol.
