Long Beach man in custody after high speed pursuit in Victorville

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) A 32-year-old Long Beach man remains in custody following a dangerous high-speed pursuit in Victorville Monday night.

It happened at 8:53 p.m. when Victorville sheriff station deputies attempted to stop a 1984 gray Chevy Monte Carlo for expired registration in the area of Bear Valley and Ridgecrest Roads.

“When deputies activated their red light and siren, the driver of the vehicle, later identified as Rigoberto Diaz Jr., refused to stop and drove away at a high rate of speed,” officials said in a news release.

Without concern or regard for the safety of the public, Rodriguez continued to run thru stop signs and repeatedly crossed over the double yellow line and drove on the wrong side of the road.

“Diaz continued driving at a high rate of speed through Spring Valley Lake, putting other drivers and pedestrians at risk,” officials said.

Diaz was taken into custody without incident when his vehicle became mechanically disabled.

Rigoberto Diaz Jr., who was found to be on Parole, was booked at the High Desert Detention Center where he is being held without bail.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Deputy Kirkendall or Deputy Carty at Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station, (760) 552-6800. Persons wishing to remain anonymous can report information to WeTip by calling 1-800-78-CRIME, or by accessing the website at www.wetip.com.
