Orange County Sheriff's Deputies arrested a man on suspicion of DUI yesterday after a 30-minute chase in Laguna Niguel.
Deputies signaled for Bradley Hier to pull over but he refused. Instead, Hier continued to drive through the streets of Laguna Niguel and Dana Point, and even obeyed traffic signs and stayed close to the speed limit.
Eventually an officer bumped the back of his car, which caused him to spin out and come to a stop. Inside the vehicle police found multiple bottles of Popov vodka.
Hier was arrested and taken into custody, where he was charged with driving under the influence and evading a police officer. The results of a breath or blood test have not yet been reported.
