A man who police said ran a stop sign early Saturday in Galt refused to pull over and led officers on a 14-mile chase that finally ended in his arrest in Elk Grove.

Galt Police said they had attempted to initiate a traffic enforcement stop about 3:13 a.m. after observing the vehicle go through the stop sign in the area of Walnut Avenue and Elk Hill Drive.

The driver fled, police said in a news release posted on the Galt Police Facebook page, and a pursuit ensued through residential areas before the car headed north on Highway 99 at Twin Cities Road. Police said the driver finally stopped at the Shelton Road exit and was taken into custody without incident.

Matthew Lewis Korn, 26, of Woodland, was arrested on suspicion of felony evasion and resisting arrest and driving without a license. He is being held on $50,000 bond in the Sacramento County main jail.

Korn also had three outstanding warrants, police said, all for misdemeanors out of Yolo County.
