APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A Victorville man remains in jail after leading deputies from the Apple Valley Police Department on a pursuit.

It happened on Thursday night at about 6:55 pm, when a deputy attempted a traffic stop in the area of Joshua Road, north of Zuni Road. The driver, later identified as 47-year-old Gary Phillip Uhas, failed to yield and led deputies on a high-speed pursuit.

With no regard for other vehicles or possible pedestrians, the suspect drove at high speeds along several residential streets. At one point, the pursuit made its way down an alleyway where the suspect rammed a wooden fence in order to go around a metal pole and drove through people’s yards.
