Parolee who filmed DUI wreck that killed sister leads cops on chase weeks after early release from prison: Report

A California woman who was paroled late last month for the 2017 drunk driving wreck that killed her 14-year-old sister was rearrested on Thursday after allegedly leading police on a chase.

The Stockton Police Department said in a Facebook post that officers attempted to pull over Obdulia Sanchez, 20, but she failed to yield and reportedly led police on a brief pursuit during which she missed a turn, driving off the roadway near an I-5 on-ramp. A male passenger fled the vehicle before Sanchez was taken into custody without incident.

Police said an inspection of Sanchez’s vehicle produced a loaded firearm. They then arrested her on weapons and traffic charges.

Sanchez was convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI, and child endangerment for causing a single-vehicle wreck near Los Banos which killed Jacqueline Sanchez and injured her sister’s friend, Manuela Ceja, 15. The then-18-year-old’s blood alcohol content was 0.106 roughly 90 minutes after the wreck. She also recorded the wreck and its aftermath and streamed it on Instagram.

Sanchez was released from custody on September 21 after serving 26 months of a six-year sentence. Correctional officials said her early release was due to the time she served before sentencing and for completing rehabilitative programs while behind bars.
