Victorville Woman Arrested After Leading Deputies on High-Speed Pursuit

ADELANTO-(  A 22-year-old Victorville woman is behind bars after leading Adelanto station deputies through a high-speed pursuit on Saturday, April 9th.

A deputy from the Victor Valley station attempted to stop the 2002 Jaguar for expired registration just before 12:40 a.m. in the area of Highway 395 and Chamberlaine Way.

The driver, later identified as 22-year-old Heather Bangs failed to stop leading deputies on a high-speed pursuit through Adelanto. She continued on in speeds in excess of 110 miles per hour, running stop signs and stop lights.

At some points the deputy told dispatch that the vehicle was smoking and slowing, but continued on until the vehicle became disabled in a desert field on Pearmain Street between Palmdale Road and Seneca Road.

Bangs exited the vehicle and lead deputies on a short foot pursuit. She was detained and arrested without further incident. She is being held at the West Valley Detention Center in lieu of $100,000 bail.
