A Glenn County man is facing a slew of felony charges following a pursuit that ended with three patrol cars being damaged.
It started in Willows at about 11:20 a.m. Thursday, sheriff's sergeant tried to pull over a man he knew was driving on a suspended license.
But 47 year-old Douglas Curl of Artois accelerated instead of stopping, and led officers on a 27-mile chase that reached speeds of 105 miles per hour.
A CHP officer who was responding to help collided with a car that turned in front of him on Highway 162.
Curl, meanwhile, led officers to his home ... where he allegedly rammed a sheriff's patrol car and a CHP car.
Fortunately no one was seriously injured.
Investigators say Curl was driving drunk. ###
