SAN LUIS, Ariz. – The man who police said was taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center after being chased by police for 20 miles was booked into the Yuma County Jail Wednesday.
Yuma County deputies said 22-year-old Adrian Obed Siquerios made his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon. He’s being held on $500,000 bond, and is facing misdemeanor charges of unlawful flight, endangerment, and resisting arrest.
This all stems from an incident Friday at 10 p.m. when the San Luis Police Department said officers responded to the 1400 Block of Arden Ave. in regards to a man who was brandishing a knife and making threats to family members.
When officers arrived, they learned Siquerios had made threats to family members. He fled before police arrived on scene.
At around midnight, SLPD officers along with the assistance of the Somerton Police Department located Siquerios in the area of Main Street in the City of Somerton. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle that the Adrian was driving but he refused to stop and began to flee from officers.
SLPD officers deployed a tire deflation device which is used to slowly release air from tires once a vehicle strikes this device. The suspect refused to stop even after having two deflated tires and continued to flee. The suspect led officers on a police chase that was roughly 20 miles.
The suspect lost control of the vehicle and ended up wrecking at County 18th and Highway 95. A police canine was deployed due to the suspect resisting arrest as officers were attempting to take him into custody.
The suspect was later taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries.
