Vehicle Chase That Started In Ione Ends In Calaveras 

A vehicle chase that started in Ione ended in Calaveras County early New Years day.  The Amador CHP reports that around 11:15 Sunday evening, El Dorado resident, Justion Dornbier was reportedly driving recklessly and nearly hit two pedestrian in Ione, one of them an on-duty Ione police officer.   A Be-On-The Look- Out was broadcast and a short time later Dornbier was spotted traveling Eastbound on Highway 88 near Lower Ridge Road at a high rate of speed.   A Jackson officer attempted to stop Dornbier, but he failed to stop and continued Southbound on Hwy 49 where the CHP picked up the pursuit into Calaveras County.  The San Andreas CHP was able to successfully deploy a spike strip just north of highway 12.   Dornbier eventually came to a stop on Hwy 49 at Mountain Ranch Road, where he was taken into custody.  The incident is still under investigation.
