“Just after 2 a.m. on August 18th, a Placer County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a traffic stop in rural Lincoln. The deputy contacted the driver, who appeared to be under the influence. The driver gave the deputy a driver’s license belonging to another individual.
As the deputy asked the suspect to step out of the vehicle, the suspect took off at a high rate of speed, leading the deputy on a vehicle pursuit.
The suspect reached speeds of 115 mph while running multiple stop signs, and driving in the wrong lane on Fiddyment Road.
The suspect continued driving in the wrong lane at extremely unsafe speeds and avoided a spike strip which was deployed by responding deputies. During the pursuit, the suspect drove through a wooden fence and onto the Sierra Pines Golf Course, in Roseville.
After damaging multiple fences around the golf course, the suspect eventually came to a stop but then led deputies on a short foot pursuit before being apprehended.
The suspect was eventually arrested and identified as 47-year-old Chris Allen, of Orland. Allen was arrested for evading a peace officer, obstruction, providing false identification, driving under the influence, and multiple felony warrants.”
