MISSION VIEJO (CBS) — An Orange County sheriff’s deputy on a motorcycle, who was chasing another motorcycle rider, was injured Tuesday after crashing into a car in Mission Viejo.

The chase started on the Santa Ana (5) Freeway near Oso Parkway about 11:50 a.m. when a California Highway Patrol officer saw two speeding motorcycles. One rider pulled over but the other one kept going, according to sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino.

The CHP officer stayed the rider who stopped, and backup officers lost track of the other rider near Moulton Parkway, Amormino said. Moments later, a sheriff’s deputy on a motorcycle, who was unaware of the CHP pursuit, saw the
suspect speeding on Alicia Parkway and went after him.

Amormino said the deputy on the motorcycle crashed into the back of a Toyota Camry.

The suspect was eventually caught on foot near Del Cerro Elementary School and taken into custody. The suspect’s name was unavailable.

The injured officer was taken to a hospital for a possible leg fracture.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    At the corner of Calaveras and N. Park Victoria in Milpitas California two corrupt DEA allmost caused the death of an elderly lady while they where harrassing a suspect.
    The elderly lady was crossing the street about 15 yards ahead of the suspect’s car that was going west bound on Calaveras after having just pulled out of the Shell station. One of the DEA in the bus stop near the Shell station tried to gain the attention of the suspect thereby almost causing the car to hit the elderly lady. The other DEA was at the Shell station.
    They have also recently, on several occasions, entered my home while I was not there so that they can get better access to my vehicle and loosen steering linkages, remove wheel weights, tamper with breaks, tamper with transmission linkages, etc… Every time I detect that they have entered my home, my dog looks like he is not feeling well. Why take my insolence out on a dog?
    They are also shooting BB guns at my car while driving. One instance they shot a BB gun at my car in a very busy intersection of highways 680&101 while I was traveling 55+ mph.
    They have been harrassing me for 20 years.
    The DEA is part of the problem and not solution. Apart from being the proxy force for the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and the NSA, they have been a failure since Nixon’s inception. The DEA could benefit from a large buget cut and employee rift to remove the corrupt ones.

    The person in the Camery should be under arrest for trying to kill a sheriff.
    Or better yet they should just kill that person on the spot.
