A parolee led deputies on a brief chase early Friday before losing control and colliding with their patrol vehicle east of Lodi, San Joaquin County Sheriff's officials said.

Nobody had major injuries, though two deputies and a passenger in the suspect's car were all taken to a hospital. They were treated and released.

The suspect, 22-year-old Kevin Grimes, was not injured and was taken to jail.

Two deputies were on patrol at 4 a.m. when they tried to stop a vehicle they suspected was being driven by a wanted parolee, according to a Sheriff's news release. They tried to pull the vehicle over at Kettleman Lane and Tretheway Road, but Grimes allegedly fled.

The one-minute pursuit lasted for six-tenths of a mile until the dead-end of Kettleman Lane, where both cars collided.

Grimes' passenger, a 23-year-old woman, was not arrested.

Grimes was booked into the county jail on suspicion of evading police, vandalism, resisting police and possession of a hypodermic needle.

He is being held without bail because he is accused of violating the terms of his parole. Jail records show that he is scheduled to appear Tuesday in Lodi court.

Nominations forHall of Fame sought

The Lodi Boys and Girls Club is accepting nominations for its 2009 Lodi Community Hall of Fame.

When judges consider inducting a local citizen into the Hall of Fame, they consider the nominee's success, leadership and dedication in such areas as education, business, health care, athletics, arts, agriculture, government and community service.

The Boys and Girls Club is urging Lodi-area residents to think about friends and family members who should be nominated for the Hall of Fame.

"Everyone who does a lot for the community and has for a number of years should be recognized," said Barbara Brovelli, chairperson for the Hall of Fame dinner.

To be eligible, a person must have lived within the Lodi Unified School District at some time.

Nomination forms are available at three locations in Lodi: the Lodi Boys and Girls Club, 1050 S. Stockton St.; City Hall, 221 W. Pine St.; and the Lodi News-Sentinel, 125 N. Church St. The form can be downloaded from the Internet at www.lodinews.com/downloads/hof.pdf.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
