Originally published as a Placer County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post:
“Just after midnight on July 10th, a Placer County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to conduct a welfare check of a male inside his vehicle along Iowa Hill Road.
The male drove off as soon as the deputy walked up to his vehicle to make contact, leading the deputy on a pursuit. During the pursuit, the suspect drove recklessly and, on several occasions, drove into the opposite lane of traffic.
A responding deputy deployed a spike strip along southbound Placer Hills Road and successfully disabled the suspect vehicle after the 30-minute pursuit.
The suspect, identified as 56-year-old Curtis Stayner of Galt, was initially uncooperative and resisted deputies before he was arrested.
Deputies searched Stayner’s vehicle and found open containers of alcohol and drug paraphernalia.
Stayner was arrested for evading a peace officer, obstructing a peace officer, driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of an open container.”
