The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) located in California says that a semi truck driver helped bring an end to a police pursuit this week.
The incident began shortly after midnight on Tuesday, May 2, in West Modesto as SCSO deputies noticed a car nearly causing a collision at Tuolumne Blvd and Leon Ave.
The car driver refused to stop for police and a pursuit began.
“As the car continued to flee onto southbound Hwy-99 between the Whitmore & Hatch Rd off-ramps in Ceres, deputies received a little help from a semi-truck driver who created his own traffic break preventing the suspect car from going any further & bringing it onto the freeway shoulder,” SCSO said.
Deputies say that driver Tiffany Cisco, 30, had a B.A.C. that was twice the legal limit.
A passenger in the car, Martin Perez, 33, was on active probation for a prior domestic violence conviction preventing him from lawfully possessing firearms, SCSO said.
Both Cisco and Perez were determined to be in possession of a loaded revolver hidden under the seat of the car.
Both Cisco and Perez went to jail for various weapons, impairment, and criminal conspiracy charges, SCSO said.
