On Monday, the San Ramon Police Department said they were making contact with an individual in a suspicious vehicle when the suspect attempted to flee and one of their officers was dragged by the vehicle.
According to police, a second officer at the scene fired several shots at the suspect and vehicle. Following the shots fired, a pursuit was initiated and continued into Santa Clara County where the vehicle became disabled and the suspect was taken into custody by members of the Santa Clara County Sheriffs Office.
According to preliminary information,the vehicle had license plates that were possibly stolen which prompted the vehicle stop near Crow Canyon Road. The pursuit hit 100 mph on I-680 and possibly involved a collision with at least one police car.
The officer sustained minor injuries and was not struck by the gunfire or injured.
The incident began at 12:04 am and the suspect involved is Sandy Lyons (48 years old, Stockton). The vehicle had a stolen license plate and was an unreported stolen vehicle taken from an auto dealership in Oakland.
Lyons was booked at the county jail on the initial violations of Penal Codes 69, 245(c), 1203.2, and Vehicle Code 2800.2(a). The case will be presented to the District Attorney for the filing of charges later this week.
