SANTA CRUZ — A man leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase down the Santa Cruz County coast Tuesday afternoon was taken into custody after ending the pursuit by driving off the cliff along West Cliff Drive.

The afternoon began with Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s deputies responding around 3:30 p.m. to reports of a man shooting a handgun in the air near Waddell and Scotts Creek just north of Davenport on Highway 1, according to department spokeswoman Ashley Keehn. Shortly afterward, a man meeting a similar description was reported to have forcibly taken possession of a Honda in the same area. Responding deputies located the vehicle north of Scotts Creek and attempted to make a car stop. Related Articles

Once the driver refused to pull over, a vehicle chase ensued, with pursuit speeds reaching higher than 100 mph south toward Santa Cruz. Once the driver entered city limits at Mission Street, deputies terminated the pursuit as a community safety precaution, Keehn said.

Santa Cruz Police Department quickly located the vehicle driving on West Cliff Drive. Shortly after 4 p.m., the driver drove off the edge of a cliff near Stockton Avenue, completely submerging in the Pacific Ocean. The driver reportedly climbed back up the cliff at police gunpoint and was taken into custody without further incident. Numerous support agencies were called to the scene and rescue swimmers verified that no passengers remained trapped inside the submerged vehicle.

As of early Tuesday evening, no citizen injuries had been reported in the incident. The Sheriff’s Office has announced plans to provide an update with additional information Wednesday afternoon.

In the United States, the match (7:30 p.m. ET start time) will be televised on Univision and TUDN. But if you don’t have cable, you can watch a live stream via FuboTV, which is the only live-TV streaming service that includes those channels.

TUDN (as well as Univision and UniMas for other Copa por Mexico matches) is available in either the 33-channel Latino package or the main 108-channel package, both of which come with a free seven-day trial:

Once signed up for FuboTV, you can watch a live stream of Pumas vs Cruz Azul on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, or other supported device via the FuboTV app.

If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as a 72-hour look-back feature, which will allow you to watch the match on-demand within three days of its conclusion, even if you don’t record it.

Pumas vs Cruz Azul Preview

Players are returning to the pitch, but the stands will be empty as UNAM vs Cruz Azul face off for their first matchup of the preseason Copa Por Mexico.

While the story is certainly soccer being played after a long hiatus, Cruz Azul is dealing with a rash of positive tests in advance of their debut. The club announced eight positive tests and seven undetermined. Previously, Cruz Azul announced that two players had tested positive.

“We from the moment we accept we are in the tournament, is not ideal in the sense of what is happening because it is a thing outside of us, no matter how many protocols you carry, but we have a commitment and we want to carry it out,” Jaime Ordiales, Cruz Azul sporting director said.

When it comes to the matchup on the pitch, it will be hard to predict what the product will look like. The teams faced off twice last year, resulting in a draw and a Cruz Azul 2-1 victory.

The tournament is the first of its kind, with the teams being divided into two groups, each of them consisting of four squads. The top teams will advance to a single-elimination semifinal match which will be followed by the championship game on July 19.

Here are some important tidbits on the tournament to keep track of:

  • Copa Por México Schedule
    Group Stage: July 3-12
    Semifinals: July 15-16
    Final: July 19
  • Copa Por México Groups
    Group A: Chivas, Mazatlán, Atlas, Tigres
    Group B: Pumas, América, Toluca, Cruz Azul

The action got started on Friday with UANL Tigres and Mazatlan FC playing to a scoreless draw and Club America getting the best of Toluca 2-0.

There was certainly some debating within the clubs to compete, especially with the positive COVID-19 tests. But América manager Miguel Herrera said getting sharp before the July 24 Liga MX 2020 Apertura.

“For us coaches it is important to arrive with games,” América manager Miguel Herrera said.

“We have three months without doing soccer in a fit and active way, so arriving from three months direct to soccer and competition without going through a preseason is not good either.”
