Last Thursday, a chaotic incident unfolded in Fairfield when 28-year-old Matthew Tucker's road rage turned violent, resulting in the reckless collision of two vehicles on Grobric Court. The Fairfield Police Department reported that the incident occurred around 6:00 p.m., causing head injuries to the occupants of the targeted vehicle.

Tucker fled the scene before law enforcement arrived, prompting a manhunt led by Officer Kimball, who issued a county-wide "be on the lookout" (BOL) for Tucker, citing probable cause for his arrest due to the alleged assault with a deadly weapon.

Solano County Sheriff's Deputies, responding to the BOL notice, located Tucker around 12:30 a.m. Unaware that their routine patrol would make them key players in the unfolding drama, they swiftly apprehended the fugitive. Fairfield's law enforcement responded promptly, taking custody of Tucker, ensuring his transition from freedom to the County Jail, where he will be held accountable for his role in the violent incident.

The collaborative efforts of the Fairfield Police Department and the Solano County Sheriff's Office were commended. Fairfield PD expressed gratitude to their colleagues for their crucial partnership in quelling the turmoil and turning it into a testament to effective teamwork.
