GEORGE PATTERSON

A vehicle pursuit and the suspect bailing on foot ended in the arrest of a man wanted on several outstanding warrants the morning of Sept. 11.

George Patterson, 55, of Placerville, was contacted for an alleged seatbelt violation at Pleasant Valley Road and Missouri Flat Road at 10:20 a.m., said CHP Officer Quinn Cuthbertson.

Instead of being pulled over, a vehicle pursuit began. It ended at Tullis Mine Road and Argonaut Drive, with Patterson jumping out of his car and running. With the help of El Dorado County sheriff’s deputies, Patterson was found in the backyard of a residence.

“He had several warrants, including one from the CHP for a felony hit-and-run,” Cuthbertson said.

Patterson is being held in custody on charges of evading a police officer while driving the wrong way, a felony; two misdemeanour counts of obstruction of justice; and a misdemeanor hit-and-run resulting in injury or death. His bail is listed as $57,500.

    Was George Patterson shirtless when arrested?

    Who cares about his shirt. It was probably torn off during his resisiting arrest. Thankfully this insect (that needs squashing) is behind bars. Just another example of the trolls of our society.

    Cheyenne, not to be unkind, but if your father didn't have several arrest warrants and didn't evade the police, we would have no reason to be talking about him.

    Cheyenne, then why don't you enlighten us of the WHOLE story of why your tatted up dad had warrants and ran from Police. I'm SURE, there is some LOGICAL reason for his actions.....like on meth or something.
