A parolee driving a stolen car was arrested and jailed on four felony charges after leading deputies on a chase early Sunday in south Sacramento County, sheriff's officials said.
Robert Treadway, 32, was booked on charges of felony evasion of a peace officer, evading in a reckless manner while driving in opposite lanes, possession of stolen property and vehicle theft, sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos said in a written statement.
Treadway also was also found to be in violation of parole, according to the statement. He was jailed Sunday in lieu of $210,000 bail.
Treadway was arrested following a chase that began at 1 a.m. Sunday, when a Sacramento County sheriff's deputy tried to stop a BMW for a traffic violation near 37th Avenue and Vista Avenue, Ramos said.
The driver failed to yield and turned off the vehicle lights before leading deputies on a chase through stop signs and red lights in residential areas, Ramos said. After several minutes, the driver stopped and fled the BMW on foot, the statement said.
Deputies set up a perimeter and searched the area with patrol units and K9 deputies. Within 15 minutes of fleeing the car, Robert Treadway was taken into custody while hiding outside a home near 40th Avenue and Laurine Way, Ramos said. A records check of the vehicle showed that it had been stolen during a residential burglary three days earlier, Ramos said.
