Nye County Sheriff’s Office deputies go on high-speed chase in Tonopah on Sunday.
In a video release, Nye County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Adam Tippetts stated that deputies conducted a traffic stop on a white Chevy Malibu on June 13 in the Bank Club’s parking lot.
“The driver, and the sole occupant of the vehicle, Mark Anthony Grande, 48, of Phoenix, Arizona, had a full extradition out of California for a sex offense. When officers asked grand to exit the vehicle, he fled in his car, leading deputies on a pursuit northbound on Highway 6 and U.S. Highway 95.”
Speeds during the pursuit reached 120 MPH, according to Tippetts.
Grande eventually drove off the roadway and disabled his vehicle after a 20-minute pursuit, authorities said.
Once stopped, Grande still refused to exit the vehicle. Grande eventually complied following deputies breaking a window on the vehicle.
Grand was arrested on suspicion of fail to stop for signal of peace officer, felony reckless driving, obstruction of justice and fugitive from justice, Tippetts said.
