Alamo: Man arrested after leading sheriff's deputies on high-speed pursuit

24-year-old allegedly tried to flee police before crashing on Danville Blvd.

A 24-year-old man was arrested after leading Contra Costa County Sheriff's deputies on a high-speed chase that started in the Antioch area and ended near Alamo on Tuesday, sheriff's officials said.

A sheriff's deputy spotted a stolen vehicle on westbound Highway 4 near Bailey Road around 2:55 p.m. Tuesday and started following it. The deputy didn't start a pursuit, but the suspect, identified as Darryl Maiale, sped away.

Sheriff's officials said the deputy stopped the pursuit when Maiale was driving recklessly and GPS technology was deployed to follow the vehicle.

Maiale allegedly then traveled at high speeds on southbound Highway 242 and southbound Interstate 680, before being spotted again on the I-680 freeway near Stone Valley Road.

According to sheriff's officials, a pursuit started again, but Maiale soon crashed his vehicle at the intersection of Danville Boulevard and Orchard Court, striking a sheriff's office radar trailer before coming to rest in a parking lot.

Maiale has been booked into the Martinez Detention Facility.
