Chico man arrested after allegedly ramming police car

CHICO — Police said a Chico man was arrested Sunday after ramming a patrol car and trying to run from officers following a theft investigation.
The incident began about 5:50 p.m. Sunday, when officers responded to the parking lot of the Kohl’s store on Springfield Drive in an attempt to contact a man suspected in a theft from a vehicle, according to a news release from the Chico Police Department.
Officers in an unmarked police car found the suspect, identified as Brian Loo, 24, parked in the lot in a Ford pickup, police said. When officers identified themselves and tried to talk to him, Loo allegedly fled out the parking lot toward Springfield Drive. Related Articles

A second police vehicle — this one marked — arrived and tried to stop Loo’s pickup, but Loo allegedly fled across a median and rammed the marked car instead, police said. Loo allegedly continued to flee against traffic before his car broke down because of the crash.
Loo then ran and jumped a fence of a home but was caught by pursuing officers and taken into custody without further incident, police said. Loo was allegedly found to be in possession of property stolen from a person’s car.
After Loo was cleared at a hospital, he was booked into Butte County Jail in Oroville on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, evading with willful disregard for the safety of others, grand theft, resisting arrest and driving on a suspended license.
