Vehicle and Foot Pursuit Ensue After Lake County Pair Caught Speeding


This is a press release from the California Highway Patrol Clear Lake Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

On May 18th, 2021, at 2142 hours, Clear Lake CHP Officer R. Erickson observed a white Chevrolet Trailblazer traveling southbound on SR-29, north of Park Way, in excess of the maximum speed limit of 65 MPH. Officer Erickson attempted a traffic stop on the speeding vehicle, however the driver, later identified as Nina Martin, attempted to flee and a vehicle pursuit ensued. CHP Officer B. Hanson, Officer B. Faraco and Sgt. J. Rexius responded to assist with the pursuit. Martin continued to flee law enforcement and traveled into the Kelseyville Valley, where she side swiped a guard rail on Stone Drive. Martin then drove to a residence on Soda Bay Road where she collided into a wood post. The Chevrolet became disabled, and Martin exited the vehicle and fled on foot. A male passenger, later identified as Joe Boggs, exited the passenger side and also fled on foot in a different direction. Officer Hanson and Officer Faraco pursued the suspects on foot and both suspects were apprehended a short time later.

One CHP Officer sustained minor injuries during the arrest. Martin also complained of pain to her chest and lower back, however transportation by ambulance was not required.

Martin was medically cleared at Sutter Lakeside Hospital and was booked at the Lake County Jail for 10851 VC, 496 PC, 2800.2 VC, 148 PC and various warrants. Boggs was booked for a no-bail warrant and for 148 PC.
