Several people were arrested early this morning after a fight at a King City restaurant turned into a high-speed pursuit with Monterey County deputies. Deputies were conducting a business check at The Grill Restaurant at 200 Broadway St. shortly after midnight when a fight broke out between some of the establishment’s employees and some patrons.
Deputies said they attempted to break up the fight when several patrons turned on the deputies. Two men were taken into custody, but another continued to fight deputies outside the business. Deputies said the suspect was able to break away and run to a 2014 Ford Focus that was waiting on Broadway Street.
Deputies later located the vehicle at a hotel, but as a deputy approached the vehicle, the car crashed into the deputy’s vehicle, causing minor damage. Deputies said the vehicle then led deputies on a high-speed chase on U.S. Highway 101. The pursuit reached speeds of 80 mph before deputies deployed spike strips about 2 miles south of the San Ardo exit. After hitting the spikes, the suspects’ car lost control and rolled down an embankment.
The three occupants were taken into custody without incident. Deputies identified the men arrested during the fight and pursuit as Rodney Procel, 22, Jose Lopez, 26, David Lopez, 22, Alejandro Mosqueda, 33, and Luis Mosqueda, 33. The charges the individual suspects are facing were not immediately available.
