A 61-year-old man allegedly under the influence sustained a broken ankle Monday morning after fleeing from Burbank police and getting stuck in a wrought iron fence.
Police had attempted to pull over the man, Bernard Bartkiewicz, at about 3:15 a.m. after he allegedly made an illegal lane change. A brief pursuit ensued through residential areas at 35 to 50 mph, blowing through several stop signs and two red lights, said police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.
About three minutes into the pursuit, Bartkiewicz stopped his 1988 Honda Prelude in a driveway in the 2100 block of Buena Vista Street and fled on foot, police said.
