REDDING, Calif. - A Fall River Mills man is behind bars after police say he led them on a chase at speeds of 95 miles-per-hour.

Officials say at 1 a.m. on Nov. 23 they spotted a 2006 Ford Mustang, previously reported stolen three days earlier, leaving the Win River Casino.

The car fled on Canyon Road when officials say they tried to stop it. This is when a 3-minute pursuit began, continuing to Happy Valley Road when 31-year-old Cecil Taylor finally pulled over.

Taylor was the man who officials say stole the vehicle and he is currently on probation for carjacking.

Booked into the Shasta County Jail, Taylor faces charges for vehicle theft, possession of a stolen vehicle, felony evading, violation of probation and outstanding warrants.
