A woman pulled over by the Sierra Madre police chief for allegedly driving erratically and speeding on the freeway is due to appear in court next month.
Lee Enjurane, 19, from Altadena, was cited and released with an order to appear at the Pasadena Courthouse Jan. 23, authorities said.
It was her second such citation within the space of two days, a sergeant said.
The suspect was pulled over by Chief Larry Giannone about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, as the department head was heading home from a Sierra Madre City Council meeting, which he attends regularly, a sergeant told Patch.
The Cadillac sedan driven by the suspect allegedly blew past him at speeds of up to 108 mph, as the chief traveled east on the 210 Freeway, according to Sierra Madre police Sgt. Enriquez Gonzalez.
The driver was weaving in and out of traffic, Gonzalez said in a telephone interview.
The two drivers were just at the 605 interchange when the chief turned on his lights and initiated a traffic stop in Irwindale, the sergeant said.
She was cited for alleged reckless driving, he added.
The sergeant told Patch that Enjurane had been stopped and cited by the California Highway Patrol some two days earlier for the same sort of behavior.
