Vehicle Pursuit Leads Deputies Into Oakdale. Subject Then Arrested for Felony Evading a Peace Officer, Reckless Driving, Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Resisting Arrest

On September 9, 2008 at approximately midnight, Sheriff Jim Mele, driving an unmarked unit in the area of the Stent Cutoff in Jamestown, was following a black 1986 Chevy Camaro that was being driven erratically. The Sheriff suspected the driver of driving while intoxicated so he contacted Dispatch—this in order to get assistance from a marked unit so a stop could be attempted. (We do not typically use unmarked units to make vehicle stops when marked units are available.)....



Deputy Jeff Gempler and Corporal Bobby Nikiforuk arrived in their respective marked units and attempted to stop the Camaro. Instead of stopping, the driver, Jason Reaves, sped off. Deputies pursued Reaves through Jamestown and westbound on Hwy 108 as he continued his reckless driving. Reaves’ speed reached in excess of 75 mph and at times he travelled in the eastbound lanes of traffic. This caused oncoming traffic to have to pull off the roadway to avoid being struck head-on. Because of the possibility of the pursuit leaving Tuolumne County, CHP was requested to assist. Their units subsequently took over the pursuit.

Reaves continued into Stanislaus County where he crashed into a parked vehicle just east of Oakdale. Then as he resisted, one of the CHP officers applied the Taser to convince him to comply. Eventually he was taken into custody.

The pursuit lasted for approximately 38 minutes and travelled over 30 miles.

Reaves was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail by CHP for felony evading, assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest.
