April 19, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
A car chase led police all across Fresno County Saturday NightThen returned right back where they started and after a short standoff at an apartment complex, sheriff's deputies got their man, a wanted felon in a stolen car.

Sheriff's deputies had tracked a stolen BMW to an apartment complex on Marks and McKinley, the chase started there, went to Kerman, and then made a u-turn, all the way back to Marks and McKinley.

Fresno Police and Fresno County Sheriff's Deputies swarmed the complex, many of them with their guns drawn.

They tracked Ryan Enos to an apartment where his brother lived and coaxed him out.

An undercover deputy was trying to arrest him earlier in the day because he'd stolen a car, but he took off when they tried to arrest him.

The chase reached speeds up to 110 miles per hour, but marked cars gave up the chase when they knew a helicopter could keep an eye on Enos.

Sgt. Eric Broughton of the Fresno County Sheriff's Office, "When the helicopter got overhead, the marked units backed off and we let the helicopter take over the pursuit. The helicopter followed the car all the way back to this apartment complex where the pursuit began."

Enos caused a crash with a sheriff's deputy during the chase. The patrol car was wrecked, but the deputy was okay.

Enos is now facing charges of resisting arrest, along with auto theft. Another man is under arrest for harboring him at the apartment complex.
