Salinas man arrested for evading arrest during Thanksgiving call


SALINAS, Calif. (KION)--Monterey County Sheriff's Office officials say on Thanksgiving they were called out to check on a suspicious vehicle near Natividad and Rogge Roads.

They say the driver of the vehicle, Nicholas Ramos, was identified and they learned he had a warrant out for his arrest.

Deputies say they asked Ramos to exit the vehicle when he sped away.

More deputies and officers with the Salinas Police Department responded and chased Ramos into the City of Salinas.

A PIT (Pursuit Intervention Technique) maneuver was used to immobilize Ramos’s vehicle, successfully ending the chase.

Ramos resisted deputies while placing him under arrest, according to deputies, but he was ultimately taken into custody.

Ramos was booked for his warrant and new charges of evading a peace officer, resisting arrest, possession of narcotics paraphernalia, probation violation, and post release community supervision revocation.

  1. Another arrest of a parolee.
    And Mr. Ramos stays in the revolving door.
    The system works well for prosecutors, judges, defense attorneys, prison owners, prison employees, gangsters and criminals. The only ones getting NOTHING, are the victims and society, who pick up the tab.
