ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — A Roseville man is under arrest after deputies say he drove right at them during a chase that ended at the Placer County Fairgrounds.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office says, around 2 a.m. on Nov. 11, deputies spotted a pickup truck going around 90 mph down Crowder Lane in Roseville. Deputies turned on their lights and tried to pull the driver over, but he continued on, blowing through several stop signs and red lights.
Eventually, the driver lost control near Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard. The deputies got out and started giving commands to the driver to exit, but he instead hit the gas.
Deputies say the man drove towards their patrol car, prompting them to jump back in to avoid getting hit.
The suspect then reportedly led deputies on a second chase that lasted until the Placer County Fairgrounds, about four miles away. Deputies managed to box the truck in, but the driver continued to resist, ramming the truck into patrol cars at least twice.
