Chase Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

Sonora, CA — The man who allegedly led Sonora Police Officer Jeff Aitken on a high speed chase has pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of Evading an Officer and Causing Injury.

A preliminary hearing for 20-year-old Peter Loren Barrett has been scheduled for June 3rd at 1:15pm in Department Four of Tuolumne County Superior Court.

Aitken sustained serious injuries when he collided with a tree on Lyons Bald Mountain Rd. this past Saturday morning. Barrett was arrested in connection later in the day after he called a tow truck to pick up his car that had crashed in a nearby field.
