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.
