A man is in custody after a high speed chase ended with a head-on crash at Towhee Lane and the Skyway in Paradise.
The chase began when Paradise Police attempted to pull over a stolen Chevy Aveo at Central Park and Williams. The suspect led police on a chase up the skyway, eventually crashing head-on with another car. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.
The suspect hopped out of the car and fled on foot, officers found him in some bushes near an area home. He resisted arrest, police saw him reaching towards his waistband and tased him. A subsequent search revealed a knife and a syringe.
The suspect has been identified as Joshua Scarborough and Paradise Police say he stole the car in Chico. He was arrested for a stolen vehicle, resisting arrest and drug charges.
