HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Michael Laki Duvall, 30, of Victorville, is in custody after leading deputies on a dangerous pursuit in broad daylight on Saturday afternoon.
On October 19, 2019, at 1:49 p.m., Deputy D. Holland stopped a black Honda Accord for California Vehicle Code violations, including failing to stop for a red traffic signal.
Duvall initially yielded near the intersection of Main Street and Mariposa Road. As the deputy exited his patrol vehicle to make contact with Duvall, he accelerated and fled.
Deputies chased Duvall for nearly 8-miles as he drove at excessive speeds, crossed over double yellow lines, made unsafe turns, failed to stop for traffic signals, and showed complete disregard for public safety, officials said.
“Duvall lost control of the vehicle, spinning out, and causing the left front tire to dislodge. He continued for approximately 2 more miles driving on the rim. Ultimately the vehicle became disabled near the intersection of Palmdale Road and Armargosa Road in Victorville and Duvall was taken into custody without further incident,” stated the release.
Michael Laki Duvall was booked at High Desert Detention Center for evading a police officer with disregard for public safety and 3 outstanding warrants. He is currently being held in lieu of $225,000.00 bail.
