ACSO: Man leads deputies on foot chase through neighborhood

ADA COUNTY - A 21-year-old Boise man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after authorities said he led deputies on a foot chase through a south Ada County neighborhood.

Cameron Dean Gamel faces multiple charges, including resisting arrest, after the incident. He also has active arrest warrants for felony grand theft and burglary.

The events leading up to Gamel's arrest started around 2:30 p.m. at the intersection of Maple Grove Road and Kiowa Drive.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office said deputies pulled over a car without a license plate that was being driven by Gamel.

Officials said Gamel suddenly ran away into the neighborhood on the west side of Maple Grove after he got out of the car to talk to a deputy.

One deputy tried to use a Taser on Gamel as he ran away, but only one of the Taser's probes hit him.

More deputies arrived, and a perimeter was set up around the neighborhood. A Meridian police officer and K-9 also responded.

Gamel was seen running through the backyards of homes and was found in the backyard of  a home on South Silverpine Way. He gave up and was arrested without incident around 3:30 p.m.

Gamel was being checked out at a local hospital as a precaution and was expected be booked into the Ada County Jail later in the afternoon.

He's expected to make his initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.

The sheriff's office said Gamel has a $30,000 bond for the felony grand theft and burglary charges, and other charges are possible.
