Dylan Davidson Parolee Arrested After Alleged Police Pursuit in Sonoma

A Santa Rosa man was arrested for a no-bail warrant after a vehicle pursuit Tuesday evening, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office. Dylan Davidson, 25, who was on parole for a domestic violence incident, was wanted since March 24 on a no-bail warrant for failing to report to his parole officer, sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Crum said.

A sheriff’s property crimes detective called for a deputy when he saw Davidson and his girlfriend leaving a Safeway store on West College Avenue in a Honda Accord around 6 p.m. The detective tried to stop Davidson’s 1995 Honda Accord as a patrol deputy entered the store parking lot.

The deputy pursued the Honda on several streets west of Santa Rosa until Davidson’s Honda reached 100 mph, Crum said. During the pursuit, Davidson struck a parked car at 10 mph when the Honda ran out of gas, according to Crum. Davidson ran from the Honda at the Terracina at Santa Rosa apartment complex at 471 W. College Ave., and the deputy and his canine Scott pursued him to a parking lot. Davidson reached to his waistband as if he had a gun several times, and the deputy released the canine. Davidson fell and the dog bit him twice on the head before Davidson was arrested, Crum said.

Davidson was treated at a hospital for minor dog bite wounds and was booked into Sonoma County Jail on the no-bail arrest warrant and on suspicion of felony evasion, resisting arrest, hit-and-run and driving on a suspended license, Crum said. Davidson’s girlfriend cooperated with deputies and was released, Crum said.
