FAIRFIELD — A high-speed chase from Vallejo to Fairfield ended Thursday afternoon with the arrest of a Vallejo man on suspicion of drug possession and auto theft.

The chase began around 5:30 p.m. when a Vallejo police officer spotted a gray, four-door sedan that had been recently reported stolen. The driver sped off when police tried to stop him and he was soon being followed by three Vallejo police cars on eastbound Interstate 80.

Police said they saw the driver toss several bags of suspected drugs out a window near the Interstate 680 interchange.

The pursuit soon included a California Highway Patrol helicopter flying overhead with officers watching the pursuit go onto Highway 12 and then briefly into Fairfield when the fleeing driver took the Webster Street exit and then turned onto Illinois Street, a short dead-end road.

Fairfield police joined Vallejo police in arresting 30-year-old David M. Hizon Jr. of Vallejo after the stolen car was rammed and disabled by a patrol car.

Hizon, an ex-con, has a long criminal history and was in court last week on pending drug and gun possession charges. He had been out of jail after posting $75,000 bail.

    Lol, yup, in Solano County they give you enough rope to hang yourself. He just added three years in prison to his previous charges for committing a felony while on bail.

    Pffft. They give you enough rope, but then they give you more and more and more, and watch you to ensure you don't hang yourself, just keep paying your fines, and you can continue to sell drugs and carry weapons,and all you'll ever receive is probation. That's how it goes in Solano County. It's all about the Benjamins Baby.

    @Gemma-Its called a 1288 hold, where the police(the police take your money, its actually the DA who gets to keep it,FWIW) lawfully seize your money for the purpose of you proving to them, on the witness stand in court, how you lawfully obtained the money. Also, this 1288 hearing must occur before the suspect is even allowed to attempt to post bail.
