On Sunday, Sept. 6, 2020 at approximately 1:40 PM, a citizen reported a large SUV chasing a smaller SUV through downtown Antioch streets. It was determined a 28-year-old Antioch man was driving the large SUV with three adult passengers and one juvenile passenger. He had a dispute with the 42-year-old male driver of the smaller SUV who had a 34-year-old female passenger.

The chase reached high speeds on 10th Street when the 28-year-old driver intentionally rammed the smaller SUV off the roadway. The smaller SUV collided into a power pole and several parked vehicles. The suspect vehicle also lost control and collided into parked vehicles, causing three of the passengers to be ejected. The 28-year-old driver initially fled the scene but returned after officers arrived and was placed under arrest.
