A 31-year-old man has been sentenced for a pursuit that didn’t end well for him. In June of 2017 a Red Bluff Police Officer pulled over James Amergian-Garrett for running a stop sign while riding his motorcycle. He initially stopped, but when the officer got out of his patrol car and approached the motorcycle on foot, Amergian-Garrett sped away. With the officer in pursuit, the rider ran multiple stop signs and rode at very high speed on city streets until he took a turn too fast and wrecked the bike. He fled on foot through several pastures before being apprehended. His driver’s license had already been suspended for a DUI conviction. He’s been given a 16 month prison sentence.
