Man arrested in pursuit waives extradition on murder charge


A man who led deputies on a chase around Carson Valley waived extradition to Arizona to face murder charges.

Reggie Lewis has yet to be charged in the Aug. 26 high speed pursuit that led into Carson Valley from Alpine County.

The Gila River Indian Community in Arizona issued a warrant for Lewis’ arrest for homicide and misconduct involving weapons, according to the complaint read in East Fork Justice Court.

A license plate reader at the Meyers roundabout spotted the white Cadillac and started the chase from Highway 89 to 88 and into the Valley.

Lewis turned onto Kimmerling and drove into the Ranchos at high speeds before doubling back down Centerville, across that roundabout, and to Foothill.

He charged through Genoa before hitting speeds approaching 130 mph on Jacks Valley Road north. Lewis was stopped after he turned onto Highway 395 south and deputies used the opportunity to knock him off the road using a pursuit intervention technique.

East Fork Justice of the Peace Cassandra Jones set a Sept. 24 hearing date for Lewis.
