A man suspected of evading police during a pursuit that reached speeds of 100 mph was arrested at his home early Wednesday morning, authorities said.
Solano County Sheriff’s Deputy Daryl Snedeker said the incident began when deputies attempted a traffic stop around 2:30 a.m.
The driver refused to stop and began trying to evade deputies by racing through the streets of Vallejo, onto Highway 80 and then onto Highway 37.
During the pursuit, the suspect allegedly tossed a shotgun out of the car window, Snedeker said.
One of the pursuing patrol cars crashed into a truck on Highway 37, the deputy added, and the truck driver and the officer were shaken up but otherwise uninjured. < p /> The suspect managed to evade the deputies, but Vallejo police knew where he lived. He was arrested without incident at his home around 7:30 a.m.
Snedeker said one other person was arrested at the suspect’s home on unrelated charges. The identities of the driver and the other man were not released.
