Police Chase Suspect Blows Through Checkpoint Near Obama Vacation Home

Washington Post:

KAILUA, Hawaii -- A man fleeing from local police drove through an outer perimeter checkpoint set up near President Barack Obama's Hawaii vacation home Friday, the U.S. Secret Service said.

Photographers took pictures of a Secret Service agent sprinting toward the scene and pointing a gun at a vehicle.

The driver wasn't trying to get near the president or his family and the incident had nothing to do with his Hawaii visit, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said.

"Honolulu police were going to arrest someone they had traffic warrants for. He was able to get away from them, and led them in a high-speed chase which ultimately led to one of our checkpoints," Donovan said.
