The vehicle took off from Kauffman and a brief pursuit ensued which ended around the corner after the vehicle got a flat tire.
The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Sergio Roman, 35, of San Jose, took off from Kauffman on foot, however, was quickly apprehended back around the corner.
Roman’s female passenger stayed in the vehicle and was cooperative when contacted by other officers.
