Lake Tahoe man leads CHP on high-speed pursuit on Highway 395 — faces possible felony charge

Daryl Edward Reinhold, 47, of Lake Tahoe, California was arrested Wednesday, March 22 near the Doyle Grade on a charge of violating California Vehicle Code section 2800.2 — felony reckless evading — evading law enforcement while driving with a willful or wanton disregard for the safety of people or property.

According to a statement from the CHP, about 11:50 a.m. Wednesday, March 22, CHP Susanville Dispatch received a call that a black Audi hatchback traveling northbound on Highway 395 had just entered California traveling at speeds greater than 100 miles-per-hour.

CHP units initially attempted to intercept the Audi south of Red Rock with speeds in excess of 120 mph.

A responding CHP unit intercepted the Audi near Cowboy Joe Road, now traveling at approximately 124 mph. A pursuit was initiated, but the Audi failed to yield.

The driver of the Audi slowed and made a U-turn just north of A-25 near The Mark. CHP units to the south successfully deployed spike strips on Highway 395 just south of Rachel Drive in Doyle. With three flat tires, the Audi finally yielded at Highway 395 and the Doyle Grade.

Reinhold was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Lassen County Jail.
