July 23, 2012

A 23-year-old Glendale man was arrested Sunday night after he allegedly led police on a chase on his motorcycle, hitting speeds of more than 100 mph on residential streets.

Aren Boghozian allegedly reached the high speeds in northeast Glendale’s neighborhood of Grandview Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard, according to police.

Officers spotted Boghozian, who was wearing a helmet with a Mohawk adhered to it, speeding on Glenoaks before allegedly running a red light at Grandview after they activated their lights and sirens.

He then allegedly swerved into oncoming traffic — nearly causing a crash — and went around a vehicle stopped in a lane. As the chase ensued, Boghozian allegedly drove through two stop signs and another red light at Kenneth Road, police said.
