A Folsom man has been arrested after allegedly leading police on a high-speed pursuit while holding his partner captive in the vehicle with him.

22-year-old Jacob Remly is facing multiple charges in connection to an alleged kidnapping and high-speed pursuit late on the morning of Sunday, April 3, which reportedly began as a domestic dispute call.

Police responded to a distress call from an 18-year-old woman at an apartment complex on the 100 block of Pique Loop. While searching for the exact apartment, officers managed to call the woman on her phone. During the call, officers heard her scream before the line disconnected, police said.

Minutes later, officers saw a white Dodge sedan leave the complex with the woman inside, crash through the front gate, and make its way out to Highway 50. Police soon backed off pursuing the suspect out of concern for public safety; witnesses reported the suspect vehicle traveling at nearly 150 miles per hour along the shoulder, police said.

Instead, authorities monitored the vehicle from the air. Aerial units from multiple agencies responded and coordinated with ground units, who were able to intercept the suspect vehicle and deploy spike strips, disabling the vehicle along Highway 80 near Colfax, police said.

Remly was then taken into custody, and police recovered a firearm he threw from the vehicle during the pursuit. The victim was treated for injuries caused during the alleged kidnapping, police said.

Remly was ultimately booked on numerous charges including suspicion of attempted murder, aggravated kidnapping, and reckless evasion.
