CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - According to reports, Citrus Heights police engaged in an automobile pursuit of Nathan Glantzer (37) on the afternoon of January 2. The pursuit began when local authorities responded to a non-criminal domestic incident at 3:34 pm near San Simeon Drive and San Pablo Drive. While under the influence, Glantzer, a parolee, fled the scene in a silver Toyota Camry after a quick verbal exchange with officers.

Speeding through the east county and into Folsom, Citrus Heights police suspended the pursuit of the suspect due to safety concerns. The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department followed the suspect from the air via helicopter. Glantzer circled back through Rancho Cordova and ended the pursuit as he crashed into a tree in Gold River. Alcoholic beverage containers were found in the automobile. Glantzer was arrested on several counts and taken to receive medical care at a local hospital for injuries sustained in the process.
