RANCHO CUCAMONGA – A 34-year-old Fullerton man was arrested for felony evading and DUI after a dangerous pursuit on Sunday night. At around 10:50 p.m. a deputy from the Rancho Cucamonga station was stopped at Milliken Avenue and 4th Street when he heard yelling coming from a business parking lot nearby. As he went to investigate, he witnessed Nathan Darrington yelling expletives. Darrington got into his vehicle and fled the parking lot at a high rate of speed, driving southbound in the northbound lane of Milliken Avenue.
The deputy followed Darrington in the southbound lane of Milliken Avenue, while Darrington drove towards opposing traffic. Darrington continued on, ignoring the lights and sirens of the patrol vehicle for several miles. He eventually entered the southbound lane of Milliken Avenue. Darrington reached speeds of 100 mph and evaded the deputy and Riverside County deputies who were assisting. Darrington eventually lost control of his vehicle as he attempted to turn and crashed into a chain-link fence.
Darrington was not injured as a result of the collision and was arrested for Felony Evading and DUI. He was booked into the West Valley Detention Center and is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
