Marysville men arrested after short chase in Colusa

Two Yuba County brothers were arrested last Saturday after they allegedly attempted to evade a police officer in a stolen vehicle.

Matthew Cupit, 25, and Mychael Cupit, 26 were arrested following a short pursuit on the outskirts of the city: The former was booked on charges of vehicle theft, evading a police officer, and on an arrest warrant out of Yuba County; the latter on a charge of receiving stolen property.

“In a nutshell, we had an officer observe him driving on northbound Highway 45 at Main St. The officer attempted to make a stop for a mechanical violation. The vehicle made a turn onto Roberts Road, and accelerated down the street from there,” Colusa Police Chief Josh Fitch said, adding that the vehicle had a taillight out.

Fitch said the pursuit continued onto 12th Street, and then east onto Main Street.

“When they hit about 7th St., the driver of the vehicle attempted to drive the vehicle up the levee there,” Fitch said.

At that point, Matthew Cupit allegedly got out of the vehicle and started running east on the levee and attempted to hide. He was found shortly thereafter, Fitch said, and was arrested on charges of vehicle theft, evading arrest, possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, along with various other vehicle code violations.

Fitch added that he had an outstanding warrant in Yuba County for possession of a dirk or dagger.

Fitch said that Muchael Cupit remained in the vehicle and was arrested on the charge of receiving stolen property.

Both men were both booked into Colusa County Jail. Matthew Cupit’s bail was set at $70,000. Mychael Cupit’s bail was set at $10,000.
