On March 25,
Another EDSO Deputy traveling south on Highway 89, along with CHP, observed a matching vehicle, a white Dodge Durango. CHP went into pursuit with the Durango as it failed to yield to them. The Durango crashed into a snow berm near the county line and the driver, Paget, ran from the vehicle. Paget, a South Lake Tahoe resident, was arrested by EDSO for attempt murder and carjacking. The victim, a 29 year old male, is expected to survive from his injuries.
Great teamwork by the law enforcement agencies in South Lake Tahoe led to the quick and safe arrest of a violent suspect.
