Man Arrested After High Speed Chase In Siskiyou County

A Siskiyou County man led the CHP on a chase that continued for hours and covered many miles of mountain roads. Saturday morning a Yreka Area CHP Officer on Southbound Interstate 5 tried to pull over a car for expired registration. The driver left the freeway at Easy Street and headed south on Old Highway 99 at more than 100 miles an hour. The chase continued onto Gazelle-Callahan Road toward Callahan as more CHP Officers joined in. At Highway 3 the pursuit headed north. As they approached French Creek Road, a spike strip was laid out by Forest Service Officers and Etna Police, but the driver saw it and made a u-turn, heading back southbound. A CHP airplane began tracking the pursuit from above, which was good timing because one of the CHP vehicles broke down and two more CHP cars became disabled at Forks of Salmon. With one remaining CHP car in pursuit, the suspect driver headed toward Etna Summit on Sawyers Bar Road. East of Idylwild the suspect vehicle ran out of gas. The driver, identified as 46-year-old Dennis Greenman, took off on foot but gave up in less than 100 feet and was arrested. Greenman apparently had a misdemeanor warrant and a suspended drivers license.
