Car Chase Ends in Manure Heap

November 08, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

An hourlong high-speed chase through eastern Contra Costa County ended when police watched a man drive his 1983 Oldsmobile into a large manure heap.

Roy Amador Jr. was deep in it when officers gingerly fished him out of his car Monday night. They booked him for investigation of assaulting two officers, evading police, brandishing a gun and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The chase began soon after 5 p.m. when sheriff's deputies checked reports that a man was brandishing a gun in Antioch. Amador allegedly led police on a chase through several towns. Just after 6 p.m., he plowed into the manure heap at a roadside dairy.
