Around 3:30 p.m., a Placer County deputy noticed a vehicle parked suspiciously off Athens Avenue near a construction yard in Lincoln.

When the deputy tried to pull the car over, the driver sped away, leading to a short chase in which the driver ran through a red light, stop sign, and was swerving in their lane.

When the deputy finally pulled the car over, the driver was identified as 42-year old Sir Lawrence of North Highlands.

Lawrence's passenger was identified as 26-year old Tatyana Chervonyak of Sacramento.

Upon searching Chervonyak, the deputies found a loaded handgun and that she was under the influence of a controlled substance.
