The suspect vehicle exited the highway at exit 212, according to the release, and proceeded south on Highway 1. The pursuit then went

out onto county gravel roads and eventually back to Fairfield. The vehicle continued through Fairfield and into Leisure Living Estates mobile home park where the driver, Argo, was apprehended.

Argo is being held in the Jefferson County Jail on a $10,000 bond. Investigation continues and further felony weapons charges are pending.
