A man wanted on a warrant was taken into custody after a brief chase in Milpitas this morning, a police sergeant said. A police officer spotted and recognized the 45-year-old man at 10:13 a.m. near the Executive Inn at 95 Dempsey Road, Milpitas Sgt. Frank Morales said. When police approached him, he ran away but was caught a short time later.
An officer held him at gunpoint, and he surrendered and was taken to Santa Clara County Jail where he was booked for resisting arrest and on a misdemeanor warrant from a different jurisdiction, Morales said. No shots were fired during the incident. An employee at the Executive Inn said he saw a number of police officers chasing a man who was running away from them. The employee said he didn’t see any weapons. He said the chase never went into the hotel.
