High-speed chase ends on Trinity Road with arrest of Sonoma Valley man

A Sonoma Valley man was arrested early Saturday after leading deputies on a high-speed chase along windy roads in the hills near the Sonoma-Napa county line before veering off the road, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said.

Richard Allen Pomeroy, 54, was booked into Sonoma County Jail on suspicion of driving drunk and evading law enforcement officials, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies initially responded to a report about yelling coming from a white pickup near Second and Maldonado avenues in Boyes Hot Springs. Pomeroy sped off toward Highway 12, deputies said, when they arrived.

Pomeroy continued north on the highway for more than ?5 miles before turning east onto the windy, narrow Trinity Road, the sheriff’s office said. Pomeroy was arrested after his truck rolled off the roadway as he headed back down toward Highway 12 on Cavedale Road.
