Suspect Leads CHP On Chase

High-speed pursuit that started in Sonoma County ends in San Rafael.


A Santa Rosa man was arrested on suspicion of DUI and evading police officers after leading the California Highway Patrol on a 30-mile pursuit in Sonoma and Marin counties early Friday morning.

Jacob Henry Shull, 26, was arrested following a pursuit that started when a Toyota 4Runner failed to yield on eastbound West Sierra Avenue in Cotati around 2 a.m., CHP Officer Jon Sloat said.

The Toyota then turned onto Old Redwood Highway and sped through surface streets in Cotati in excess of 90 mph before driving south on U.S. Highway 101 into Marin County, Sloat said.

Marin CHP officers joined the chase as the vehicle exited the freeway onto Manuel T. Freitas Parkway and drove through red lights and stop signs, according to Sloat.

The Toyota stopped at the end of Arlene Terrace in San Rafael where the driver, later identified as Shull, ran onto a pedestrian trail, Sloat said.

Shull eventually surrendered and was booked into Sonoma County Jail around 5:30 a.m. on suspicion of evading police, DUI and resisting or obstructing an officer, Sloat said.

Shull was on probation for DUI that required an ignition-interlocking device, according to Sloat.
