Police chase ends in arrest in suburban Phoenix

PHOENIX — A man who crashed a truck into several police vehicles in Gilbert was finally taken into custody Monday morning.

The chase ended near Recker and Williams Field roads around 9:30 a.m.

Police said Preston Oberly, 25, had created enough of a disturbance in a bank parking lot at Guadalupe and Gilbert roads that they were called around 9 a.m.

“The subject was banging on car doors and windows with his hands, and yelling, screaming in the parking lot,” Gilbert Police Sgt. Jesse Sanger said.

Sanger also said that when officers arrived, Oberly got into a black pickup truck and sped out of the lot, “driving straight towards one of the officers that was on foot.”

The officer was unharmed.

The car was eventually disabled and Oberly was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault, felony flight and driving with a suspended license.
