Bakersfield police arrest man suspected of leading chase in stolen vehicle

A man was arrested Wednesday night after allegedly fleeing from police in a stolen vehicle.

Officers spotted the stolen vehicle and tried to conduct a traffic stop on Baker Street.

The driver, suspected to be 30-year-old Porfirio Fonseca Jr., led officers on a chase through east Bakersfield until bailing from the car and jumping into another car driven by someone else, police said.

Officers successfully stopped that second car, and the suspect was arrested without further incident.
