CERRITOS, Calif. (AP) - A road rage suspect arrested after sideswiping cars and spinning out on a freeway shoulder during a Southern California police chase has been identified as a 21-year-old Colorado man.

The California Highway Patrol says Wednesday’s wild, hour-long pursuit began in San Gabriel, east of Los Angeles, when an SUV was involved in a road-rage incident with police.

The Nissan Rogue sped through streets and freeways, into downtown LA and then south, sometimes topping 100 mph.

The vehicle smacked into cars and appeared to deliberately sideswipe a CHP vehicle before losing control.

The driver ran into some trees but was quickly arrested by a K9 unit.

San Gabriel police say Christian Castrellon of Montrose, Colorado, could face charges including assault with a deadly weapon and felony evading. It wasn’t known Thursday if he has an attorney.
