Roseville, Calif.- A Placer County sheriff’s deputy arrested a man driving a stolen car after the suspect led him on a one-mile pursuit in Roseville today.

The suspect, Michael Wayne Adams, 33, of Sacramento, was driving aggressively and with  malfunctioning taillights along East Roseville Parkway at Eureka Road when the deputy saw him. The deputy turned on his emergency lights and the driver sped off. The deputy followed him for about one mile, until Adams crashed into a center median at Douglas Blvd. and Roseville Parkway. Adams and his passenger both ran, but the deputy caught the passenger.

Around that time, a citizen called 911 to report that a man was changing clothes – and was now wearing pink sweat pants – at an office building at 3300 Douglas Blvd. It’s not known where the suspect found the pink pants.

Placer County sheriff’s deputies and Roseville Police officers surrounded the building, and with the assistance of a K9, found Adams on the second story of the office building. He was arrested and will be transported to the Placer County Jail in Auburn on charges of stealing a car, possessing stolen property and evading arrest. The car had been stolen from Cameron Park.

Adams’ mug shot will be released once he’s booked at the jail.
