Man Peppered Sprayed After Slow Speed Chase

A man has been taken into custody after a slow-speed chase Monday morning. A Redding Police Officer tried to stop the suspected drunk driver shortly after 6AM but he kept going. He wasn’t trying to get away, though, as the officer reported he was only going 18 miles an hour. With lights and sirens behind him, the man continued down Athens Avenue and turned into the Kutras Gardens Senior Apartments, where he parked in front of his own home. He apparently put up some minor resistance and was pepper sprayed before being taken into custody.
