Briefs: Man arrested after chase
A brief pursuit ended Tuesday in Yuba City with a Marysville man with a lengthy criminal history in custody facing more than a dozen criminal charges.
Anthony S. McCoy, 23, fled after a traffic stop around 1 a.m. near Market Street. The short chase ended on Harkey Way when McCoy ditched his car and tried to run, but was apprehended quickly, Yuba City Police spokeswoman Shawna Pavey said.
McCoy was wanted in Yuba and Butte counties on warrants charging domestic violence and probation violations.
He was booked into the Sutter County Jail on fresh felony allegations of evading police, obstructing peace officers, committing a felony while on bail from a prior charge, as well as misdemeanor allegations of driving under the influence of narcotics.
McCoy remains in custody in Sutter County without bail.
