Transient Arrested in Victorville After Cutting Ankle Monitor and Crashing During Pursuit

VICTORVILLE, Calif. ( — Richard Irwin, a 51-year-old transient, was taken into custody on July 2, 2024, after removing his ankle monitor and being involved in a pursuit that ended in a crash.

Around 8:24 a.m., deputies from the Victorville Police Station initiated a traffic stop on a 2017 Ford pick-up at the intersection of Seneca Road and La Paz Drive. Rather than stopping, Irwin fled, leading to a short pursuit by the deputies.

The chase came to a crashing end when Irwin lost control of his vehicle at the intersection of Hesperia Road and Crestview Drive, resulting in a collision with a business fence at 14229 Crestview Drive.

The Ford F-150 pickup truck overturned, and deputies assisted Irwin out of the vehicle without incident.

It was discovered that Irwin, who is on parole, had removed his ankle monitor, which is a violation of his parole conditions. He was subsequently arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center in Adelanto. He faces charges for P.C. 273.5 – Felony Spousal Abuse, P.C. 236 – False Imprisonment, and P.C. 3056 – Violation of Parole.

The incident remains under investigation as authorities review the circumstances of Irwin’s actions and the removal of his ankle monitor.
