The motorcycle was being driven by Brandon Remy, 44, of Pollock Pines, who was accompanied by Karen White, 24, of Placerville, a press release stated. Remy, instead of pulling over, began evading deputies.

White was allegedly seen throwing an item from the motorcycle, the press release stated. Deputies were able to recover the item, discovering that it allegedly contained illegal drugs and drug-related items.
Patrol personnel and aircraft were utilized during the pursuit.

There were no injuries to bystanders of involved parties.
Remy was arrested on charges of violating parole, evading arrest, possession of a stolen motorcycle, driving under the influence and drug-related charges. White was arrested for drug-related charges, attempting to conceal or destroy evidence and interfering with the duties of a peace officer.
