A Parolee at Large was charged with multiple felonies after a pursuit yesterday that started in Colfax.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office was called to a verbal dispute at a residence Thursday in Colfax at 3:10 p.m., where it was reported that a male had been causing a disturbance. The man had left the home in his car with a female passenger before deputies arrived at the home.
The person who called in the disturbance said the man was Jason Singer, 40, and it was determined that he was a wanted parolee-at-large, and was listed as armed and dangerous.
Placer County Sheriff’s Department PIO Dena Erwin says a deputy spotted Singer’s vehicle but before he could make contact Singer drove off.
One mile into the pursuit, Singer crashed his car into trees as he attempted to take the West Paoli Road off-ramp. A tree fell onto a power line, causing a dangerous situation as the power line was suspended over the car.
The female was able to climb out of the car, but Singer had to be extricated by fire personnel. Both were airlifted to Sutter Roseville Medical Center. The female who was treated and released told deputies that Singer struck her in the head with his fists prior to the pursuit and took her against her will . Once released from the hospital, Singer will be booked at the Placer County Jail and charged with felonies to include: domestic violence, kidnapping, false imprisonment, evading law enforcement which resulted in injury, and violation of parole.
