Woman leads deputies on wild pursuit while posting on Instagram (video)

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) – A 22-year-old Van Nuys woman was arrested after leading Victorville sheriff’s deputies on a wild high-speed pursuit as she posted a video to her Instagram account early Thursday.

The suspect, Amber Rose Tyson was booked into the West Valley Detention Center on January 18, 2018, for evading police; disregard for public safety and vandalism of $400 or more, according to public arrest records.

On January 18, 2018, deputies responded to investigate suspicious circumstances in the 13100 block of Flint Lane after multiple residents reported hearing a car horn sound several times and windows of their residences being broken.

“They then witnessed a female in a white BMW driving erratically through the neighborhood,” sheriff’s officials said in a news release.

As deputies arrived at the scene they saw the BMW leaving, at a high rate of speed. A traffic stop was initiated, with the deputy activating the red lights and siren on his marked patrol unit. However, Tyson failed to yield and led Victorville sheriff’s deputies on a 40-mile pursuit.

During the pursuit, Tyson failed to yield at several stop signs and red lights, while traveling at high rates of speed. She entered the southbound 15 freeway, driving erratically and reaching high rates of speed. A deputy was able to initiate a successful pursuit intervention technique (PIT) when Tyson was forced to slow her vehicle, due to semi-trucks traveling ahead of her. The pursuit came to an end south of the Foothill Boulevard off-ramp in Rancho Cucamonga.

Tyson was arrested and booked into the West Valley Detention Center on charges of vandalism, evading a Peace Officer, and driving under the influence of alcohol. She is scheduled to appear in Victorville Superior Court on January 22, 2018, and is being held in lieu of $105,000.00 bail.

A video showing multiple sheriff’s deputies in a pursuit along the I-15 freeway was uploaded to Tyson’s personal Instagram account with over 90,000 followers. In the video you can see multiple sheriff’s deputies involved in a pursuit as the driver of the vehicle films them from the rear view mirror.  A woman in the video could be heard saying; “Still ain’t stopping bi**h, keep chasing me. (laughs). From Victorville to Glendale I’m still gonna fuc* up yo momma bi**h.”
