Cory Michael Scow
FRESNO – Police arrested a man on suspicion of weapons and other offenses following a short car chase in central Fresno.
Police say that 43-year-old Cory Michael Scow was going out of consciousness while driving his truck on the 200 block of North Van Ness Avenue around 5:20 p.m. on March 12. Police believe his physical state was likely due to illegal drug use.
When officers on the scene asked Scow to exit his vehicle, Scow started his truck and drove away, leading the officers on a short pursuit, authorities said.
Police were able to catch up to Scow and arrest him. During a search of his vehicle, officers discovered a semi-automatic, .22-caliber handgun with a live round in the chamber and 10 rounds in the magazine, police said.
Scow was booked into the Fresno County Jail for carrying a loaded firearm in public and concealing a firearm in a vehicle, along with other charges.
