Injured Suspect in High Speed Pursuit Accident Hides in Shed

This is a press release from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

Capture 2On 12-23-2015 at approximately 11:00 PM, Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office observed a white Ford Ranger pickup with a partially obscured license plate on Branscomb Road near the intersection of Willis Avenue in Laytonville, California.

A traffic stop was attempted for the equipment violation but the driver accelerated dramatically and fled southbound on Highway 101.

The Deputies pursued the pickup truck through rainy weather at speeds between 80 and 90 miles per hour with emergency lights and sirens activated.

At approximately MPM 61.53 on Highway 101, the driver lost control of the pickup truck causing it to careened up a hillside, spin in several tight circles and finally flip over onto its roof in the center of Highway 101.

The driver, later identified as Ben Brooks, emerged from a window and fled on foot, resulting in an extensive search that failed to locate him.

Deputies subsequently discovered the pickup truck had been reported stolen from Lake County.

In addition to the open charges related to the stolen vehicle and the vehicle pursuit, Brooks was wanted on a Mendocino County arrest warrant.

The following morning at approximately 11:30 AM, a resident in the 35000
block of North Highway 101 discovered Brooks hiding in a storage shed and called law enforcement.  Deputies responded and arrested Brooks on the listed charges.

Brooks suffered significant injuries in the traffic accident the previous night and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

On 12-27-2015 Brooks was medically cleared for incarceration and was booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $120,000.00 bail.

  • I’m really sick of tax payers having to pay the hospital bills for idiots like this

    • Barry Wallowberg

      They print the money…

      Taxpayers don’t pay for anything, it’s fiat.

      • Would you elaborate on that? af

          Government runs on debt. They went bankrupt and Woodrow Wilson brought in the Federal reserve, a private, offshore bank to handle the money.
          Prior to the Fed, currency was backed by gold and silver, it’s what the nation was founded on.
          FDR made it illegal for Americans to own gold, made them turn it in or face jail, made a profit.
          Since government just prints the money, its backed by faith the debt will be related. The money even states on it that it’s for debt, not value.
          Since they just print it and run in debt, an inflation tax is passed on to your savings. A hidden tax on savers.
          The debt is so large there isn’t enough value on the planet to repay it. So when one dollar was a silver dollar, that same coin sells for $20_ ounce of gold was $20, now sells for $ 1000.

          Constant watering of value by printing money…hence the taxes collected don’t even cover the interest on the debt that can’t be repayed- taxpayers don’t pay for anything.

          Since they just print money collecting taxes makes no sense, but to keep people down. It’s slavery through economy.

          Hope you don’t have a banker hiding in your shed…

          • Barry’s correct.
            China has bought gold & silver, opened a bank, and will be the new currency by Sept 2016. (If all continues according to plan). The American paper dollar will be totally worthless. Americans who have invested in gold & silver will transfer over to the new currency (Yuan) & continue small aspects of life as they know it. Hopefully people have honed their skills for barter & trade, strengthened their communities for group sufficiency, and even have extra food goods to get them through the first few weeks months or years. People are now listed as a resource, with the same value as a rock. The “lucky” ones will be more valuable. Learn robotics, software, electrical, solar, first aide, and of course gardening, cooking & canning. Peasants will always be needed, for feeding & satisfying the royals. Cash will be illegal. Private property a no no, hence the “regional” departments like the water boards, the EPA, BLM, etc…
            Firefighters have experienced the baffling new laws against fighting fires on so called federal property, yet are unawares of why. If they dare fly a retardant plane or even use a shovel, to stop a wildfire from spreading, they will be held & tried as terrorists. It’s all in the Biodiversity Treaty the USA signed with the UN. Google the UN Biodiversity Treaty Assessment. They’ve hidden a few chapters & pages after alarm was raised, but they’re easy enough to find once you start digging.
            Human beings exhale minute natural toxins, but the new acceptable levels set by the EPA is zero. Think about it. Those who know its the dose, not the poison, that matters, will see how the masses have been fear mongered into accepting ridiculous new goals. The masses would have to awaken from their sleep, toss off their addiction to fear & drama, & take their lives back into their own hands in order to stop the worst. This will never happen. People love their opinions more than facts. God help us all.

            Banksters have been very bad as we saw in ’08-’09. Like 9-11, two blown wars, lives wasted, billions wasted, you don’t hear much about ’em cause we can’t hurt Bush-Cheney feelings.

            Since when is the Fed. reserve offshore? Oh, that was Barry.
            So, you say that firefighters this past summer were unable to fight on public land. Prove it. I’m calling you out on the firefighting. Nothing about that in the news.
            A little bit over the top, man. Try the de-caf. Inadvertently funny. People love opinions more than facts. Firefighters tried as terrorists? This is a joke, right?

          • Lost Coast: you’re right: Barry is a joke!

          • This summer? Reading between the lines I still can’t find mention of this summer, except by you.
            The facts are, the Feds say their best practice standards must be followed or you will be charged. Anyone who goes against their rules is anti & will be treated as such. Best practice standards now consist of not disturbing Mother Nature in any way. Not her rocks, weeds, water, trees, brush, but instead just let nature run her course. People are not to touch it without permission from their Gods in office. No bulldozers, no retardant planes, no nothing unless permission and permits are acquired. No shovels or hoses unless permission is granted. (on the kings land). I imagine this includes firefighters. Remember the fires in 2000 that grew from a few hundred acres to hundreds of thousands of acres in the 3 days the Gods sat on their thumbs forbidding fire attack except by shovel? Remember the Montana state helicopters that were grounded from flying because their buckets carried too much water? If you refuse to obey, you face felony charges.
            Distract, insult, dismiss, hide the truth from yourself, I really don’t care, but the facts still remain no matter how hard you spit them from your persona.
