SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

      After a slow speed pursuit, a convicted felon is behind bars tonight.

     Eventually the man was pinned down by police units.

      At the scene police said the driver had a felony conviction linked to drinking and driving, and was suspected today of driving drunk on a suspended license.
