APPLE VALLEY– A man involved in a domestic dispute at an AM/PM Gas Station flees from authorities and is involved in a high-speed chase.
On Monday, March 19, 2018 at around 8:35 p.m. authorities were called to an AM/PM gas station located at 15333 Rancherias Road in the Town of Apple Valley.
The reporting party stated to dispatch that a male had thrown a female to the ground near the water pumps. Upon deputies arrival they observed a male suspect standing near a black Chevrolet Impala.
Once the male suspect noticed law enforcement he jumped into the drivers seat of the Chevrolet Impala. The suspect then drove erratically out of the gas station nearly hitting several pedestrians in the parking lot.
The driver of the Chevrolet Impala later identified as 20-year-old, Corey Hodges a resident of Apple Valley led deputies on a high-speed chase reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour. Hodges ran two stop signs and a red light. Deputies were able to catch up with Hodges when he veered off onto a dirt road and his vehicle became disabled. Hodges fled the vehicle on foot where deputies a short distance later were able to take him into custody without incident.
Corey Hodges was booked into the High Desert Detention Center and charged with CVC 2800.2 Failure to Yield. Investigators determined that the original call of a domestic disturbance was unfounded.
If you have any information regarding this case you are urged to contact Deputy Troy Verral or Sergeant Matthew Griffith at (760)240-7400. and reference case no. 181801537.
