Two arrested, one sought after foot pursuit in Grass Valley

Two men were arrested and a woman was being sought after she reportedly failed to comply with a traffic stop and they foot-bailed from her vehicle Sunday night, sparking a foot pursuit.

A Grass Valley Police officer on routine patrol saw the vehicle, which was known to law enforcement and which was suspected of transporting a wanted person, just before 6:30 p.m. on Idaho-Maryland Road near the Highway 20 offramp, said Sgt. Clint Bates.

The officer attempted a traffic stop, but the female driver ran a stop sign with her two male passengers fleeing on foot into Wolf Creek, Bates said.

One of the men, identified as Bradley Daniel Zinola, 26, was suspected of having a weapon and was Tased after a foot pursuit. One of the other suspects reportedly pepper-sprayed both Zinola and the officer during the pursuit, Bates said.

Nevada County Sheriff’s deputies and Nevada City Police officers assisted in setting up a perimeter and a deputy subsequently arrested the second man, identified as Douglas Ralph MacDuff, 23.

The woman driving the vehicle, identified as Jordun Baggett, reportedly fled and is being sought by Grass Valley Police.

Zinola was booked into county jail on suspicion of resisting arrest and two outstanding misdemeanor warrants, and was released on $12,500 bail.

MacDuff was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, violating post-release community supervision, and possessing a baton; he was being held without bail.
