  • Crazy chases should end with someone going to jail for quite some time! Why do these things always seem to occur around the same area?

  • Y’all asked for more cops, with that comes a little less freedom for ya I’m afraid.

  • Why were they chasing him/her……police protection from a criminal or boredom

    • In this update, CHP says they pursued him because the Sheriff’s Office had been chasing him. We don’t know why the Sheriff’s Office was chasing him yet.

        Siren if by day, light bar if by night. Trying to think of a title if Ken Burns or Quentin Tarantino shows up.

  • You can run but you can’t hide!!Stupid is as stupid does!!!

    Nice light streak frame with the story. Good wall hanging, abstract art for the Chamber of Commerce. If only the EPD had had their expensive body cams on we could have a wonderful video collage of the 42 round shoot-out in Eureka, plus county-wide footage like this. If only Sole Savers had their security cam operating. If only . . . .I say that a lot lately.
