Suspect leads police on slow-speed scooter chase in Nevada

The Nevada Appeal reports (http://bit.ly/1feemsn) that Joseph Scurti is facing charges including suspicion of a parole & probation warrant & probation violation. Obstruction charges are pending.

The slow-speed pursuit began Friday when Carson City deputies tried to pull Scurti & his TaoTao scooter over.

p>Deputies say they ran the scooter's registration & learned Scurti had two outstanding felony warrants.

Authorities say he drove down Highway 50 then rode onto a sidewalk, hitting a patrol vehicle.

The scooter then became stuck underneath the car.

Deputies say Scurti then ran yet was tackled & handcuffed.

Scurti told police he was riding away because he had to drop the scooter off at a friend's house.
