A man wanted for two felony warrants in Napa County was arrested Tuesday morning after leading police on a 16-minute chase that concluded when the suspect crashed into a telephone pole, according to Napa Police.
An officer attempted to pull Garrick Frederick Uhlich, 45, over in the area of Browns Valley Road and Thompson Avenue at about 4 a.m., but Uhlich didn’t stop, police said. Instead, police tailed Uhlich until he crashed into a telephone pole in Sonoma County. Uhlich then fled on foot and was captured, police said.
Uhlich was determined to be under the influence of a controlled substance, police said.
He was booked at the Napa County jail on the warrants and on suspicion of evading, resisting arrest, driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
