The incident began about 9:30 p.m. when an El Dorado County sheriff's special enforcement detail attempted to stop a stolen motorcycle near the Quick Stop Market at 615 Pleasant Valley Road in Diamond Springs. The motorcycle was driven by Brandon Remy (left photo), 44, of Pollock Pines, who was accompanied by a passenger, Karen White (right photo), 24, of Placerville. Remy did not pull over and instead tried to evade deputies, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

Authorities said Remy was released from prison about five months ago, and deputies knew that a warrant had been issued for his arrest for a parole violation.

During the pursuit, deputies saw the passenger throw an item from the motorcycle. They recovered it from the side of the road and found that it contained illegal drugs along with drug-related items, officials said.

The California Highway Patrol joined in the pursuit, using patrol officers and aircraft.

The chase continued into Amador County, where Amador sheriff's deputies became involved. The pursuit ended at the Amador County Fairgounds, with no injuries to bystanders or the parties involved.

Remy was arrested on suspicion of parole violation, evading arrest, possession of a stolen motorcycle, driving under the influence and drug-related offenses.

White was arrested on suspicion of drug-related offenses, attempting to conceal or destroy evidence, and interfering with the duties of a peace officer.

Both were booked into El Dorado County Jail.
