Two men arrested after car chase on park trail – Chico Enterprise-Record

0 1

CHICO — Some may think crime is a walk in the park, but for two Chico men, it was more of a low-speed chase through one.

Two men were arrested early Friday morning after a car chase by police ended up at the park trail through Comanche Creek Greenway at Park Avenue.


According to a press release issued Friday by the Chico Police Department, an officer in the area of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway noticed a vehicle “driving recklessly” through a business’s parking lot. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the press release said, but it failed to yield and a chase began.

The vehicle got onto southbound Highway 99 toward East Park Avenue, eventually getting onto the road and traveling westbound toward Comanche Creek.

Upon arriving at the Comanche Creek Greenway, the vehicle, still being pursued by the officer, entered the park’s trail at a speed of around 10 mph.

The driver stopped once he reached Valine Lane and the two men attempted to make a run for it, abandoning the vehicle.
