RED BLUFF, Calif. - A person took off from Red Bluff Police when police attempted to pull over the suspect for doing donuts in the middle of the road, Red Bluff Police said.

Police received a call of a driver, Uriah Hare, driving the wrong way near Antelope Blvd. and Main Street around 2:30 p.m.

When police located the 45-year-old, Hare was doing donuts and police attempted a traffic stop.

Hare took off from police reaching speeds of up to 70 MPH.

The vehicle left the road on Hogsback Road and became unable to drive.

Hare abandoned the vehicle and attempted to hide in an area with tough terrain, causing California Highway Patrol to dispatch an aircraft.

When officers reached Hare, Hare resisted police commands to surrender.

K-9 Many was deployed and assisted in taking Hare into custody.

Hare was booked into Tehama County Jail for felony evading, evading while driving in the wrong direction, resisting arrest and possession of methamphetamine.
