Twenty-eight year old Benjamin Nicholas Davidson of El Cajon was arrested late Tuesday night after leading La Mesa Police officers on a chase that wrecked two cars, left another driver injured, and found Davidson unsuccessfully attempting to break into an occupied home.

After police attempted to stop Davidson’s Saab for speeding along Fuerte Drive near Interstate 8, he attempted a quick turn onto Grossmont Drive to elude officers, but instead was involved in a head-on collision with a Ford F-150 pickup.

Fleeing the crash scene on foot, Davidson ran to a residence on the 9300 block of Wister Drive, breaking a window to gain access in a further attempt to escape the police. Once inside, however, he was confronted by the home’s owners, who threw him out the front door of the home and into the custody of arriving officers.

The driver of the truck complained of head pain and was taken by paramedics to a local hospital. Davidson suffered lacerations to his hands and legs while entering the home through a broken window and was treated for his injuries before being booked into jail. The homeowners escaped the situation unscathed.

Davidson, who already had an outstanding felony warrant for parole violation, was also booked on new charges of hit and run, residential burglary, possession of heroin, and resisting a police officer.

This is kind of funny. Sounds like this bad ass got the old heave-ho, probably by some WWII vet who wasn't too impressed by someone breaking in through his window. I think Nicholas was lucky he didn't meet with the wrong end of a shotgun.

The sad part is you can almost read between the lines and see that this 28-year old is going to end up in the joint; get some more tats; learn a few more tricks; and eventually be back on the street to do it all again. We make 'em; we take 'em; but we rarely break 'em.

Heroin addicts are usually not bad asses, as they usually weight in at under a buck 20
