PETALUMA, Calif. — A teenager driving under the influence struck and injured a Sonoma County sheriff's deputy in Petaluma early today at the end of a two-mile chase, authorities said.

Deputy Brett Fairbanks was trying to stop a 16-year-old Petaluma boy by putting spikes on a Petaluma road at about 12:20 a.m. as the youth was being pursued by another deputy, the Sheriff's Department said.
