Suspect surrenders to K-9 Aero after high speed pursuit
ANDERSON, Calif. —
The Anderson Police Department arrested a man after he surrendered following threats of K-9 Aero being used to apprehend him, Friday night.
According to officials, the incident started at 9:30 p.m. when an officer attempted to pull over a 1993 Isuzu trooper near Bruce Street and Emily Drive after witnessing reckless driving.
Police say the driver, Matthew Christopher Humble, 29, of Anderson, didn't stop for police and a pursuit was initiated.
Humble drove the vehicle westbound on Olinda Rd. and then southbound onto W. Anderson Dr. About a mile down W. Anderson Dr. Humble performed a U-Turn and began traveling northbound on W. Anderson Dr. reaching speeds in excess of 90 mph.
In the area of Olinda Road and Peter Pan Gulch Road, Humble drove the car off the roadway and into a field. Police tracked Humble as he crossed a small creek in the vehicle and then got out and began to run from the scene.
K-9 Aero was deployed and his handler told Humble multiple times that if he didn't surrender Aero would find and apprehend him.
Police say Humble then began calling out to officers saying he did not want to get bit, and surrendered. Humble emerged from the brush and was detained into handcuffs without incident.
A records check revealed Humble to be on probation out of Shasta County for a charge of resisting arrest.
Police stated that when they asked Humble why he ran he indicated he was, "Just trying to have fun." Humble also asked the officers if they "had fun."
