Something about this story makes us think reconciliation is not in the works for a local couple that has seen better days.
A woman notified the Orange County Sheriff's Department and said her ex-boyfriend was in a silver 2000 BMW that his parents had reported stolen from their Lake Elsinore residence Friday evening.
The woman, who was following deputies in a gold Toyota Corolla, said the man was sitting in the stolen vehicle, which she had last seen parked near Avenida de las Flores and Laurel. She also advised police her ex-boyfriend was most likely under the influence of drugs, according to the blotter from the OCSD.
Deputies spotted the BMW on Las Flores, and a squad car blocked off eastbound traffic on the street. The suspect was inside the vehicle, but was uncooperative and aggressive with deputies.
Eventually, deputies detained the 28-year-old unemployed man and followed a medic who transported him to Mission Hospital.
He is currently being held on $100,000 bail at the Theo Lacy Facility, and is due to appear at the Central Jail Court on Tuesday.
The call came in around 7 p.m. on Friday, from Avenida de las Flores and Laurel Road.
Mysterious smoke emanates from storm drains

Both agencies checked the Avila Apartments, where everything seemed clear.
The call came in Sunday, around 4 p.m., from Antonio Parkway and the 241 Toll Road.
