COTTONWOOD, Calif. - A man took off when Shasta County Sheriff’s attempted to pull him over in Cottonwood on Friday, Shasta County Sheriff’s said.

Timothy Parker Jr., 35, was passed by a K-9 deputy who was familiar with Parker.

The deputy turned his patrol vehicle and activated his lights to conduct a stop but Parker accelerated his car at a high rate of speed away from the deputy.

Parker refused to stop for about a mile while running a stop when the deputy attempted to stop him.

Parker then stopped and ran from his car at the Amberwood Mobile Home Park. A citizen notified deputies where Parker ran to.

A sheriff K-9 began to search the backyards and lead deputies to a small garden shed where they located Parking hiding inside.
Parker surrendered to deputies with no further incident.

Deputies found illegal brass knuckles and ammunition while conducting a search of Parker’s vehicle. Parker is a convicted felon and prohibited to possess ammunition.

Parker was arrested for five charges and his warrants and was booked into the Shasta County Jail where he is being held in custody with no bail.
