Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man with several outstanding arrest warrants in unincorporated Sonoma County near Sebastopol Tuesday afternoon, officials said. Sheriff’s office Property Crime detectives responded to the 10200 block of Burgundy Way at about 1:50 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a tip that 30-year-old Patrick James Barsky, of Sebastopol, according to sheriff’s officials.
Barsky was wanted for felony evading arrest, possession of controlled substance for sales, transportation of a controlled substance, DUI, driving with a suspended license and possession of a concealed weapon, officials said. When deputies arrived at the home, they found Barsky outside. Additional units were dispatched to the house to assist in the arrest, officials said. Barsky had gone in the residence as the additional units were in route.
A police dog located Barsky in a room near the garage. Officials said Barsky, who had previously led detectives on a high-speed car chase, climbed into the rafters of the room and refused to come down. Detectives later physically removed the suspect from the rafters and arrested him. Barsky was booked into jail for the warrants as well as suspicion of resisting/delaying officers. He is being held in lieu of $97,500 bail.
