Citrus Heights Police Officer Arrested After Chase

CITRUS HEIGHTS, Calif. (AP) - A Citrus Heights police officer has been fired after leading officers from another agency on a 40-mile, high-speed chase over the weekend.

Authorities say James M. Fraser also ran over the foot of a Folsom police officer with his motorcycle during the pursuit.

Folsom police tried to pull over the 27-year-old at 2 a.m. Saturday for traffic violations. Authorities say Fraser was speeding on his motorcycle and had run a red light.

Fraser, who was off-duty, exceeded speeds of 100 mph during the
chase and eventually was arrested.

A spokeswoman at the Citrus Heights Police Department says Fraser has been fired. He had been employed at the department for eight months.

Citrus Heights and Folsom are suburbs of Sacramento.
