On January 28, 2019, at approximately 1625 hours, a Sparks Police detective was traveling northbound on Sparks Blvd approaching Ion Drive.  The detective observed the driver of the vehicle next to him, a white GMC Trail Blazer (NV 204F78), smoking narcotics while driving.  The detective initiated a traffic stop and identified the driver as Brian Forest.  Shortly after the initial stop, while the detective was standing next to the driver's door of Forest, Forest sped off. Forest traveled northbound onto Pyramid Highway from Sparks Blvd, and began driving on the shoulder at high speeds.  The detective quickly terminated the pursuit due to the erratic driving of Forest.  Forest has an active warrant for a prior DUI offense and Sparks Police is attempting to locate him for the actions listed above.
