A 31-year-old Seal Beach man who, according to police, led them on a short chase and barricaded himself in his home for a two-hour standoff, turned himself in Tuesday to serve a 180-day jail sentence as part of a plea agreement.
Husamiddin Mubashshir remains in custody at the Orange County Jail after pleading guilty to one felony count of evading a police officer and reckless driving and misdemeanor counts of resisting and battering a peace officer and driving on a suspended license.
Mubashshir was arrested in July following a two-hour standoff in the military housing complex off Anchor Way. The incident began when police say Husamiddin Mubashshir refused to heed officers’ calls to pull over and instead led them on a chase to his home on Anchor Way, where he barricaded himself for two hours.
Officers had tried to pull Mubashshir over after they received a call of a domestic dispute in the area of 12th and Pacific Coast Highway. When police arrived on the scene, a woman told them her husband, Mubashshir, had dropped her off and left the area, but shortly after that the police officers watched him drive by, according to Sgt. Steve Bowles.
When they tried to stop Mubashshir, he fled and led officers on a short chase to his home in the military housing complex off Seal Beach Boulevard, according to Bowles.
“He fled from our officers, pulled into his driveway, and then barricaded himself in his house,” Bowles said at the time.
There were no weapons involved and no one else was in the house, added Bowles. When police entered the house, Mubashshir fled out the back sliding glass door and assaulted the officers as they attempted to apprehend them.
