Local police arrested a Rochelle man Sunday morning following a short car chase in the Hub City.
Reports indicate that the incident began a short time before 2AM when 43-year old Cruz Martinez of Rochelle allegedly disobeyed a traffic control device. The vehicle chase with police lasted a few blocks before Martinez stopped.
After further investigation, he was arrested on the charge of DUI, fleeing to elude police along with failure to yield for an emergency vehicle and having no insurance.
Martinez will appear in court on the charges at a later date. No one suffered any injuries from the incident.
