DUI, fall in creek, arrested in California

A California DUI man led police on a circular freeway chase early Sunday and was finally arrested for California DUI after he fell into a creek, California DUI lawyers say.

James Silveira, 31, was booked into County Jail in Martinez on suspicion of California DUI - driving under the influence and failure to yield. He is being held without bail for a probation violation, indicate California DUI attorneys.

Silveira was spotted driving at a high rate of speed on northbound Interstate 680 near Stone Valley Road around 2:30 a.m., said California DUI attorneys.

Lafayette California DUI officers were called to stop the vehicle after the California DUI suspect got on westbound Highway 24, Hebel said, but he ignored the California DUI officers' attempts to get him to pull over.

California DUI suspect Silveira eventually made his way back to Interstate 680 -- southbound this time -- and then his right front wheel came off near Crow Canyon Road.

After the vehicle came to a stop, he tried to run away, but instead fell down a 15-foot embankment into a creek, California DUI attorneys understand.

California DUI suspect Silveira stopped running and was arrested for California DUI and booked into jail without incident, California DUI lawyers are told.
