A man suspected of following sheriff’s vehicles and running other vehicles off the road along Soledad Canyon Road was taken into custody Sunday afternoon.

“It was just an uncooperative individual who is now in custody,” said Sgt. Janice Banks of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

The incident began after deputies arrested a female the suspect was with at a Shell gas station on Golden Valley Road in Canyon Country, according to sheriff’s officials.

After the arrest, the man followed the police cars along Soledad Canyon until more units arrived on scene to take him into custody.

He was detained at the Swap Meet parking lot along Soledad Canyon.

  • So following cops is illegal? I don’t buy this running cars off the road nonsense

  • Are u his friend? Its seems you are excusing his behavior. Yep the cops must be lying.

  • How many deputies does it to arrest an idiot?
    Apparently, a baker’s dozen.

  • Its such poor taste you people are so negative towards law.enforcement, especially given the circumstances of this past week. You should be ashamed.

  • I agree with you Kim. And I gotta say that I think with everything that has gone on it is a shame that these comments are made. At the end of the day their is No color and No badge. They are all people trying to get through their day to return back to their families. And NO situation is the same.
