A suspicious vehicle sat parked at Meridian School on the night of May 18 after 10:00.
Deputies with the Sutter County Sheriff’s Department arrived to check it out.
Three people were in the car, which “accelerated and drove toward the deputies.”
In an attempt to run over one of the deputies, the vehicle came “within feet of hitting” him according to the press release.
The chase was on, but not before the two passengers jumped out of the vehicle. Turns out the unnamed pair said the driver announced he was going to flee and they allegedly told him they wanted no part of it.
The pursuit continued until Pass Road when “a successful spike strips maneuver was used.”
That ended it, and 28-year-old Kyle Brazil was arrested for evading and driving under the influence of a controlled substance.
He will also be charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
The SCSO press release says, “Due to the order put out by the Judicial Council of California regarding COV19 statewide emergency bail schedule that sets bail at $0 for most misdemeanor and lower-level felony offense, Brazil has been released. (Attached is his photo taken prior to being released).”
