VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A 26-year-old Victorville man was arrested after leading deputies on a high-speed pursuit and attempting to run after crashing into another vehicle.

On May 8, 2021, Deputy J. Palacios, with the Victorville Police Department, observed the driver of a 2009 Infinity doing “donuts” in the parking lot of Jocko’s Pub and Grill. Palacios activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to make a traffic stop, officials said.

The driver of the Infinity, later identified as Leonardo Enciso, failed to yield, and a vehicle pursuit ensued. The pursuit continued for approximately 2-miles westbound on Bear Valley Road at speeds more than 90 mph.
