ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. - Arroyo Grande High School was on lock down Wednesday morning after police say a man stole a car from the 7-11 in Arroyo Grande and drove into a field directly across the street from the high school.
Police arrested 30-year old Brandon Michael Creary of Oceano. Officers said the pursuit started just before noon on Wednesday. They arrived at 7-11 near E. Grand Avenue and Halcyon Road for a report of a stolen car, a white Ford Ranger. Police searched the area and San Luis Obispo Sheriff's Deputies found the stolen truck near the 800 block of Olive Street with the suspect, Creary, inside the truck.
Officers initiated a felony traffic stop, but were unsuccessful. Police said the suspect reversed and rammed into the Arroyo Grande Police patrol car and a SLO Sheriff Deputies car. Officers said Creary fled the scene to a field near Arroyo Grande High School where the truck finally came to a stop. The school was temporarily placed on lock down.
Police say the suspect led California Highway Patrol, Arroyo Grande Police and a CHP Helicopter on a chase to the field, where the suspect was stranded. Officers tried to get Creary to surrender but he refused. The K-9s were deployed to catch Creary. The suspect was bitten several times by the K-9. Police also hit Creary with a baton and he was still resisting arrest. He was eventually taken to the San Luis Obispo County Jail after being treated for injuries at a local hospital.
