An apparently drunken altercation at a Walnut Creek club sparked a confrontation reportedly involving a gun, touched off a police chase of a fleeing Ferrari and ended with that car crashing into several others at Oak and Jones roads Sunday evening.
The incident was reported at approximately 8:30 p.m. at Retro Junkie in the 2100 block of N. Main Street when two patrons, a man and a woman, apparently got into a confrontation with other customers. Witnesses reported seeing a weapon of some type and police were notified as the couple left, getting into the Ferrari and colliding with at least one other car as they left the area.
Police responding to the scene reportedly spotted the battered sports car and attempted to stop it before it allegedly took off north on Civic Drive, reaching speeds estimated at 65 mph.
Witnesses said police appeared to back away from their chase of the car as it continue to run north, eventually crashing into other cars at Oak and Jones.
Neighbors said police quickly pulled up behind the now heavily damaged Ferrari and took at least one person into custody, medical personnel loading another onto a stretcher.
Reports that a weapon was recovered from the vehicle could not immediately be confirmed.
