Lodi police arrested a man who they say tried to flee from officers in a stolen vehicle on Wednesday morning, according to Lodi Police Sgt. Mike Manetti.

Officers said they spotted Clyde Higby, 31, of Lodi, driving a stolen vehicle near Pine Street and Cherokee Lane around 11 a.m. When officers tried to stop Higby, he sped away, according to Manetti.

Higby, who is on community supervision, drove north on Cherokee Lane, reaching speeds of 50 miles per hour, Manetti said.

But the pursuit was short-lived.

According to the pursuing officers, Higby drove the car onto a sidewalk in front of a fast-food restaurant on the 200 block of North Cherokee Lane and took off on foot, Manetti said.

However, the chase lasted for only a few feet before officers apprehended Higby in the fast-food restaurant’s drive-thru lane, Manetti said.

Higby was booked in Lodi jail on suspicion of vehicle theft, obstructing a police officer, possession of a stolen vehicle, evading a police officer with a disregard for safety and hit-and-run property damage.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
