VIDEO: Vallejo Suspects Arrested After High-Speed Police Chase, Attempted Carjackings On Freeway

VALLEJO (CBS SF) -- Two suspects led Vallejo police officers on a high-speed chase which ended after their car became disabled and they unsuccessfully tried to carjack vehicles while on Interstate Highway 4, police said Monday.

Vallejo police said officers on Saturday had spotted a vehicle wanted in connection to a felony arrest in the parking lot of the Glen Cove Center on the 100 block of Robles Way. When officers tried to make an enforcement stop, the car sped away, swerving to avoid a spike strip that had been deployed, police said.

The vehicle led officers on a high-speed chase on surface streets and neighboring highways, police said, with the driver at times coming dangerously close to driving on the wrong side of the street, leading officers to cancel the pursuit at times.

**Vallejo Police Pursuit** Last night, CHP H-32 was over the City of Vallejo, when officers from the Vallejo Police Department advised they had terminated pursuit after the suspect vehicle fled the wrong way on the freeway. H-32 was able to locate the vehicle as the suspect continued to drive in a reckless manner throughout the City of Vallejo, eventually fleeing south into Contra Costa County. In the area of I-680 and Hwy 4, the suspect exited the vehicle and attempted to carjack two vehicles. Vallejo Police Officers were able to take the suspects into custody at this location. The Vallejo Police is investigating this incident.

The vehicle then stopped abruptly and the driver and passenger attempted to carjack two separate vehicles on the freeway in order to escape arrest, police said. Officers eventually apprehended both suspects who had several outstanding warrants for their arrests.

The driver was identified as 28-year-old Scot Troy Babot Jr. and the passenger as 30-year-old Cirelle Valencia Adams, both of Vallejo. Neither suspects had a gun, police said.

Both Babot Jr. and Adams were arrested on multiple charges including attempted carjacking, evading by driving on the wrong side of the roadway, disregard for public safety, driving without a license, and felony warrants.
