By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

Bakersfield Police say a suspect pushed a woman out of a vehicle during a pursuit, and ultimately stopped when the vehicle struck a fence in the 500 block of Date Street and became disabled.

Police released news of the pursuit Thursday morning, but didn't say what time and day it happened.

It all began when officers tried to stop a vehicle for a stop sign violation in the 200 block of Lincoln Street and the vehicle didn't yield, a police news release said.

The suspect struck a parked car in the 500 block of Bernard Street, and at one point the female passenger was pushed out of the moving vehicle. She was taken to Kern Medical Center.

The suspect hit a fence and then there was a foot pursuit. Bakersfield Police identified the suspect as 27-year-old Mario Baltier, the news release said.

He was arrested on suspicion of possession of a stolen vehicle, felony evading, hit and run, assault with a deadly weapon, driving on a suspended license, a stop sign violation and resisting arrest.
