Chino Valley Man Arrested After Leading Police On A Chase Through Prescott

A man was arrested Saturday after he fled police, avoid hitting drivers and pedestrians, before crashing into a roundabout and finally rolling over. Police say 46-year-old William Quillin of Chino Valley was pulled over at the intersection of Montezuma and Goodwin streets after getting a report of a possible DUI driver in a Jeep Cherokee at around 7:15 p.m. Officers tried speaking with Quillin, but he locked his car doors and refused to roll down the windows. Quillin then fled the scene, drove over a curb into an empty dirt lot and across a sidewalk onto Goodwin Street. Police say Quillin almost hit several pedestrians in the area and then collided head on with a vehicle at Cortez and Gurley streets and then fled again. The vehicle was driven by a woman with her seven-year-old daughter inside. Quillin was then spotted on Highway 89 heading north to Chino Valley. The Jeep almost hit several more vehicles and crashed into the roundabout at Highway 89 and Willow Lake Road and kept going. Quillin crashed again at another roundabout, this time at Highway 89 and Phippen Trail. The crash caused the Jeep to rollover and come to a stop. Quillin suffered minor injuries and was taken to Yavapai Regional Medical Center and was treated and released into custody. Detectives believe drugs and alcohol played a factor in the incident. Quillin was booked on a slew of charges and possible DUI charges are pending results from a blood test. No one else was hurt during the incident.
