A 23-year-old man was arrested Friday afternoon after leading officers on a chase through yards in a Petaluma neighborhood, police said today. Petaluma police Officer Paul Accornero tried to stop a vehicle on Stanley Street for an unsafe driving violation at about 3:50 p.m. The driver, Britain Davis, allegedly stopped the vehicle in the middle of the intersection of Stanley and Upham streets. He got out and ran, according to police. Then he jumped a fence into a yard. A female passenger in Davis’ vehicle was detained. Police determined David had a no-bail warrant for his arrest for criminal threats in Marin County and prior arrests for violent crimes. Davis, who was eventually found hiding in bushes, refused to follow officers’ orders to surrender, according to police. A police dog named Kilo subdued Davis while an officer took the suspect into custody. Davis, a Petaluma resident, was taken to Petaluma Valley Hospital for injuries he received during his arrest and then he was booked into Sonoma
