Minden, Nevada- On May 1, 2020 at 11:45 am Carson City Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) located a stolen red Audi 2 door motor vehicle stolen out of California, in Carson City, Nevada.  CCSO attempted to stop the Audi but the driver failed to stop his motor vehicle.  CCSO chased the Audi into Douglas County, Nevada and requested assistance from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO).   DCSO took over the pursuit due to the extreme recklessness of the driver and his motor vehicle. 

DCSO chased the Audi south on Highway 395 onto Johnson Lane up to the dirt area east of Johnson Lane.  Sometime during this engagement, the driver attempted to strike DCSO Patrol units with his motor vehicle. 

DCSO chased the Audi west on Johnson Lane and due to the continued extreme reckless driving and assault with a deadly weapon by motor vehicle. DCSO used a motor vehicle intervention technique and stopped the Audi at the intersection of Johnson Lane and Highway 395 resulting in the damage of two DCSO vehicles.  No law enforcement officers were harmed. 

The suspect, later identified as Fabian Campos was taken into custody and after a medical clearance at the hospital, booked into the Douglas County Jail.
