The first chase began at Brookhurst Street and Warner Avenue in Fountain Valley at 3:15 a.m., when police tried to stop the 1989 Chevrolet IROC-Z28 because it did not have a license plate, according to Sgt. Larry Griswold of the Fountain Valley Police Department. The driver sped away and onto the San Diego Freeway, heading south with police in pursuit.

The city's Police Department is seeking authority to be the main law enforcement agency at Mile Square Park, which is county-owned but located entirely within the city boundaries. The park, the busiest in the county, is technically the responsibility of the county Sheriff's Department. Each day, sheriff's rangers patrol the park and adjacent golf course. But when the rangers need quick reinforcement, they call Fountain Valley police, said Police Lt. Robert Mosley.
