In the East Bay overnight, a police chase ended with the arrest of an armed parolee in West Oakland.

The suspect drove his car into the grassy median at Mandela Parkway and 28th Street just before 1:00 Tuesday morning.

Officers had tried to stop the man for speeding, but he tried to outrun them before his car became disabled.

Paramedics examined the suspect for any injuries he might have suffered during the chase. Officers then took him to Alameda County's North County Jail for booking.
