VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A Victorville mother was arrested for threatening a principal and a police officer after she was informed a BB gun was inside her son’s backpack.
It happened on May 23, 2018, at about 2:00 pm, when Devin Diggins, 31, was called by the principal of Village Elementary School and was informed that her child had a BB gun in his backpack and she would have to come pick the child up, officials said.
Eric Camarena, Public Information Officer for the Victor Elementary School District told Victor Valley News, “the student actually turned it in to the teacher on their own. Of course, we don’t want anything like that on our campuses but we’re glad the student acted quickly to notify an adult.”
According to sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez, “Diggins entered the school office and continued through the office onto the campus, without stopping to check in, as is protocol for safety reasons. Diggins confronted the Principal, yelling at her and threatening to harm her.”
Deputy Jimenez, with the Victorville Police Department, who is a School Resource Officer for the school District, arrived and observed the incident occurring as she exited her vehicle.
“When Deputy Jimenez approached the two, Diggins began threatening Jimenez. Diggins was ordered to put her hands behind her back and refused to comply. Jimenez was able to get Diggins’ hands behind her back and placed her in handcuffs,” stated Rodriguez.
Diggins was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center for threatening both the Principal and Deputy Jimenez and was being held on a $25,000 bail.
According to public arrest records Diggins was released and is no longer in custody after posting bail on May 26, 2018 and has no scheduled court date.
