VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A combative man trapped inside a vehicle was arrested for battery after punching a firefighter and kicking two cops, officials said.

At about 7:23 PM on August 3, 2020, deputies from the Victorville station responded to the scene of a single-vehicle rollover at Luna Road and Cantina Drive.

Upon arrival, officers located a black 2016 Volkswagen Passat on its side and blocking the roadway. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez said the 32-year old Los Angeles resident, Everette Lawrence Thompson, was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was trapped inside.

Rodriguez said fire personnel used hydraulic equipment to extricate Thompson from the car and during the extrication process, Thompson punched one of the firemen in the face.

“As deputies assisted AMR personnel in getting Thompson onto the gurney and into the ambulance so that he could be transported to the hospital for examination after the crash, Thompson became combative. He kicked two deputies and attempted to kick other fire and AMR personnel,” stated Rodriguez.

Thompson was booked at High Desert Detention Center after being cleared by the hospital. He was arrested for PC69 Obstructing/Resisting and PC243(C)(1) Battery on Emergency Personnel.

Thompson is being held on a $50,000 bail and is scheduled for arraignment on August 5th.

Rodriguez said alcohol is believed to have played a factor in the rollover and the case will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s office for review and consideration of additional charges.

Cloud of cement dust from Cemex plant in Victorville triggers fire department response

Published

on

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A cloud of cement dust from a Cemex plant in Victorville triggered a response from the fire department Friday evening.

On April 24th, 2020, at 5:05 p.m., the Victorville Fire Department responded to reports of a commercial structure fire at the plant, located at 16888 E St. in Victorville, after people reported the cloud of building material particles as a fire.

“It was not a fire,” stated Victorville City Spokeswoman Sue Jones. “Cemex was filling a silo. It was cement dust that resembled a smoke cloud.”

Cement is the main ingredient in concrete and is a very fine powder that can be dangerous.

A nearby business owner, who did not want to be named, said he believes cement dust poses a health risk for the residents who live or work near the plant.

“Every two days we got to wash our car with muriatic acid, [and Cemex] won’t do a [expletive] thing about it,” he stated. “You know, they’re a global company.”

“That usually doesn’t happen until Sunday morning when nobody’s up,” he stated as he pointed to the dust cloud.

According to Osha.gov, exposure to cement dust can irritate eyes, nose, throat, and the upper respiratory system.

Skin contact may result in moderate irritation to thickening/cracking of skin to severe skin damage from chemical burns. Exposure to silica, which is often in cement, can lead to lung injuries including silicosis and lung cancer, the government website stated.

Osha suggests that anybody who is experiencing symptoms should rinse their eyes with water if they come into contact with cement dust and consult a physician, use soap and water to wash off the dust to avoid skin damage, and wear a P-, N- or R-95 respirator to minimize inhalation of cement dust.

There was no report of injuries at the Cemex plant and at 5:30 p.m., the excess dust escaping from the silo had stopped.
