Ehh it was an automatic Boxster.
On Aug. 12 shortly before 1 a.m., Sgt. Chris Johnson saw a silver Boxster make an illegal left turn out of the Crossroads shopping center onto Rio Road, and when Johnson pulled the car over on northbound on Highway 1, the driver initially stopped. But as Johnson walked toward the Porsche, “the driver — later identified as Eric Miskey —
revved the engine, shifted the vehicle into gear and sped away,”
24 hours later, when a Pacific Grove officer saw the Boxster in a no-parking area on Ocean View Boulevard “with a guy asleep inside,” at around 12:25 a.m.
But instead of acquiescing, Miskey again tried to escape, according to Lakind. Before he could get away, one of the officers was “able to get into the vehicle and put it in park,” Lakind said. And, using “control techniques,” the officers were able to get him out of the car. Nobody was injured, he said. PGPD turned Miskey over to a Carmel police officer, who took him to Monterey County Jail
