Failure to stop leads to arrest
Wednesday, July 16 — A traffic stop quickly turned into a vehicle pursuit after a Susanville man failed to yield.
At about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 15, Justin Lord, 26, failed to stop his vehicle after a Susanville police officer attempted to pull him over on Fair Drive for driving without a license, according to a press release from the Susanville Police Department.
The chase lasted about four minutes and covered nearly 1.3 miles. Lord eventually stopped his vehicle, which reached nearly 50 miles per hour during the chase, on Hall Street. Upon stopping, he then allegedly tried to flee the scene on foot.
