CORNING // A Tehama County man is in trouble after bolting during a traffic stop and leading police on a high-speed pursuit.
On November 7th just after 4 AM, officers attempted to stop 37-year-old Robert Perozzi of Corning due to speeding. Perozzi, on the other hand, had no interest in being detained and instead kicked off a pursuit in the area of Columbia Avenue and Viola Avenue.
The pursuit, reaching speeds up to 90 MPH, eventually took police and Perozzi into the city of Corning — where Perozzi crashed into a house on First Street.
He got out of the car and tried to flee on foot, but was quickly apprehended. In addition to a newly-discovered existing warrant, Perozzi is also on the hook for felony evasion and resisting arrest.
