VICTORVILLE – A 32-year-old Long Beach parolee was arrested on Monday after fleeing from deputies from the Victor Valley Station on Monday night. At around 8:53 p.m. two deputies activated their lights and sirens in an attempted to stop Rigoberto Diaz Jr., who was driving a 1984 Gray Chevy Monte Carlo with expired tags.
Diaz continued on at a high rate of speed from the area of Ridgecrest and Bear Valley Roads failing to yield to the marked patrol vehicle. While speeding away from the deputies, he went through stop signs, crossed over double yellow lines, onto the wrong side of the road. He continued at high speeds through Spring Valley Lake, putting others in his vicinity at risk. Diaz’ vehicle became mechanically disabled and he was taken into custody.
Diaz was booked into the High Desert Detention Center where he is being held without bail. Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Deputy Kirkendall or Deputy Carty at Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station, (760) 552-6800.
