Butte County deputies make an arrest Wednesday night following a chase that ended at the Gold Country Casino. It started around 8pm when authorities say a man driving a motorcycle failed to yield at an intersection, and sped off when officers tried to pull him over. The chase wound through residential streets, and along Oro Dam Blvd, eventually winding up on Olive Highway. In the casino parking lot, the driver ditched the motorcycle in deep gravel and took off on foot. He reportedly resisted arrest and may have been injured by officers using batons. The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to the hospital. No word on why the man fled. Authorities do say he was driving on a suspended license.
