The suspect drove into California, where a pursuit was initiated by the California Highway Patrol. The pursuit continued until the California Highway Patrol was able to deploy spike strips to disable the vehicle. The vehicle came to a stop in the area of the Susanville Airport, just south of the city limits at about 6:15 p.m. The suspect, Dale Voglaar, then exited the vehicle armed with a pocket knife and began to stab himself repeatedly in the chest and neck. Voglaar was subdued and taken into custody. Voglaar was transported to Lassen Community Hospital for treatment and eventually flown from Susanville to Renown Medical Center for treatment of his self-inflicted stab wounds.
