Actually heard this on the way home from work this morning on the all-news radio station. Must be a slow news day. He should have been arrested just for being this stupid! Lee arrested in early morning raid. Thursday, January 29, 2004 2:52 PM PST YREKA - An early morning raid by law enforcement on a home in Big Springs has resulted in the arrest of three people, including 25-year-old Joshua Lee. Lee was arrested on a no-bail warrant charging him with violating probation in a 2003 domestic violence case, and leading police on high speed chases to escape arrest twice within the past three months. The Special Response Team (SRT) from the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Department fielded nine officers, including Deputy Behr Tharsing and his K-9, Gotto. Officers from the Siskiyou County Narcotics Task Force, Yreka Police Department, the sheriff's department and the SRT team all converged on a house on the Steven Seagal ranch in Big Springs at 5 a.m. this morning where Lee was reported to be living with his parents, common law wife and two children. As soon as officers knocked on the door of the home, Lee reportedly vaulted out of a second story window onto a porch roof on the house, dressed only in boxer shorts. When Lee jumped 15 feet from the roof to the ground, he was immediately tackled by a sheriff's department sergeant, but Lee was able to wrestle away and take off running. The sergeant was reportedly injured in the encounter. Officers and the sheriff's department K-9 "Gotto" took off after Lee. Deputy Tharsing said Gotto was within inches of grabbing Lee, when Lee darted off in another direction and got away. Lee was eventually found hiding in a shallow ditch and was taken into custody by a member of the SRT team. Lee is expected to be charged with battery on a peace officer for the injuries sustained by the sergeant this morning, in addition to the charges contained in two warrants for his arrest. One of the warrants charges Lee with violating his probation in a January 2003 case when a Yreka woman told police Lee had held her at gunpoint for three days and threatened to kill her and her family if any of them reported him to police. Lee pled guilty in that case to corporal injury to a spouse or cohabitant, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. He was given a suspended six-year prison sentence and ordered to serve 365 days in the county jail and serve five years on probation. The second warrant charges Lee with felony evading an officer and injuring a passenger in a hit and run accident. In November, Lee reportedly led Yreka police on a high speed chase to avoid arrest that ended in Hawkinsville. Lee reportedly crashed the car and took off running, leaving an injured passenger in the car. A second high speed chase within the past two weeks ended when Lee accelerated to speeds in excess of 130 miles per hour on Highway A-12 east of Yreka. Police determined that to continue with that pursuit was too dangerous and backed off from the chase. Lee's parents, Donald and Cynthia Cameron, were also arrested this morning on charges of harboring a fugitive. "It was obvious from talking with them that they knew Lee had warrants and we were looking for him, yet they made no effort to turn him in," said a member of the Task Force. Donald Cameron is reportedly a foreman at the Seagal Ranch and both he and his wife are being held without bail. According to jail officials, bail on charges of harboring a fugitive is set at the same amount as bail for the fugitive. Since Lee is being held without bail pending arraignment, so are the Camerons.
