CHP Arrests Drivers for Alleged DUI Crash and Speeding with Outstanding Warrants
SAN RAFAEL— A DUI hit-and-run suspect and a driver wanted for outstanding warrants were arrested in separate incidents by California Highway Patrol. Both suspects were booked at Marin County Jail.
Rashad Jamalandre Scott Sohan, 22 of Oakland, was clocked speeding while driving north of the Golden Gate Bridge. With sirens blaring, he led CHP officers on a pursuit northbound on Highway 101 early August 9.
The chase ended after Sohan exited from the freeway. He abandoned his vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. He was arrested at 3:56 a.m. on the 200 block of Baypoint Drive in San Rafael.
Sohan is in trouble for more than allegedly speeding and evading an officer with disregard for safety. He was also arrested on outstanding warrants for battery and burglary. He remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bond.
In a separate incident, Scott E. Baker, 67 of Kentfield, was arrested for hit-and-run and DUI charges. Baker was taken into custody on Alameda Del Prado in Novato on August 9 at 8:39 a.m.
Baker’s vehicle became disabled after he allegedly rear-ended another car. Only minor injuries were reported. However, Baker was determined to be intoxicated while driving with a suspended license for a DUI conviction.
Baker was held in lieu of $51,500 bond for several DUI alcohol/drug charges causing injury, in addition to hit-and-run. He has prior DUI arrests in June 2022 and May 2018.
In another DUI incident in 2017, Baker was also arrested for alleged assault with a deadly weapon likely to produce great bodily injury.
