Originally published as a Sutter County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post:

“On May 15, 2022 at approximately 2216 hours, Sutter County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Harrison attempted to conduct a traffic stop on two vehicles that were racing in the area of Highway 99 and Highway 20 in Yuba City.

The two vehicles were traveling at approximately 100 MPH southbound on Highway 99. One of the vehicle slowed down once Deputy Harrison was able to catch up to the vehicles; however, a 2016 Chevrolet Corvette did not slow down.

The Corvette fled from Deputy Harrison at approximately 100 MPH northbound Highway 99. When the Corvette reached Highway 99 and Lomo Crossing it turned around on Highway 99 and fled southbound on Highway 99 at approximately 140 MPH.

Deputy Harrison noticed the Corvette had turned its lights off and was driving in the wrong lane against traffic at a high rate of speed. Due to the Corvette driving with wanton disregard for the public, the vehicle pursuit was terminated. The Corvette was not located.

On June 2, 2022, Deputy Harrison seized the Corvette per a court order that was signed by a Sutter County Superior Court Judge for 14602.7 (a) of the California Vehicle Code. Deputy Harrison arrested the driver, Tony Wang, of the Corvette and booked him into the Sutter County Jail for 2800.2 (a) VC (felony evading), 23103 (a) (reckless driving), 23109 (a) VC (illegal speed contest).”
