Guam - A 33-year-old man is behind bars after leading police on a high speed chase through Tumon and damaging a police cruiser.  Guam Police Department Spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia says shortly before 1:00 p.m.Tumon-Tamuning precinct officers responded to a report of a man who had been throwing and breaking glass bottles by Gun Beach.

The individual fled in a Ford Explorer and as officers tried to conduct a pull over, the driver eluded police by weaving in and out of traffic and even driving on the wrong sid of the road going up the hill on to Ypao Road.  

Balajadia says the individual then turned right onto Paseo De Oro and pulled into a residence.  When one of the officers pulled up to the vehicle, the individual backed the Explorer into the patrol car and fled up towards the East-West Business Center on Rt.1 in Upper Tumon.  He was taken into custody by other officers.  Balajadia says a police cruiser was taken off line due to the damage which is estimated to be between $6,000-$10,000.
