GARDEN GROVE...Last Saturday night, November 27th, at approximately 11:30 p.m. Garden Grove police spotted a speeding vehicle near Harbor Blvd. and Garden Grove Blvd. at the same time they received a call over their radio that the vehicle they spotted was wanted in a car-jacking.

Police began to follow the vehicle as it sped through two cities before being stopped at Channel Road and Ocean Boulevard in Newport Beach.

At this point the driver refused to exit the vehicle and police had no choice but to use non-lethal means to removed the suspect including the use of a K-9 unit.

The suspect was arrested at the scene and later identified as William McNair, 45, of Los Angeles.

The chase began when a couple stopped to use the ATM at a local bank. As a woman exited the vehicle, the suspect approached and dragged the male driver out, before driving away.

No additional information is available at this time.
