It's always a good idea to have a clean driving record, even more so if you're a wanted suspect on the run.
But 25-year-old Michael Diles didn't exactly play it safe while fleeing the cops. During a routine traffic stop, Berkeley police nabbed the San Francisco man who had been wanted for pepper-spraying and trying to rob a foreign exchange student while on Muni.
Last month, police arrested Diles' suspected accomplice, 24-year-old Raheem Muhammad, who remains in custody today. At the time of his arrest, police issued a crime alert, asking the public to help track down suspect No. 2.
Police say that on Oct. 20 about 5:45 p.m., Muhammad, an Oakland resident, and Diles were on on the 38-line in downtown when Diles came up behind the victim and allegedly doused him with pepper spray.
Muhammad then rushed over and allegedly tried to steal the 24-year-old man's backpack. The victim was wouldn't give up his bag, and both suspects got off the bus, running in different directions.
