PINAL COUNTY – A Casa Grande man and a Mexican National are arrested after a chase through Pinal County that involved drugs, a run-in with a cow and a fight with a dairy worker.
On Sunday, December 1st at 8:03 a.m. the Arizona Department of Public Safety sent out an “Attempt to Locate” after they received information regarding two or three individuals loading bundles of marijuana into a green Ford Taurus near Interstate 8 and Stanfield Road.
Shortly after a deputy with the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office located a car matching the description, northbound on White and Parker Roads. He tried to stop the car, but it took off. It was speeding in excess of 100 mph during the pursuit. Deputies attempted on several occasions to put out “spike strips” in an attempt to deflate the tires to end the pursuit. While one of the deputies was attempting to lay out the “spike strips,” the driver swerved and almost hit him.
