Victorville Man Attempting to Leave Accident Scene Arrested for Threatening Juvenile Driver

VICTORVILLE, Calif. – A 19-year-old Victorville man was arrested after threatening a juvenile suspect following a minor traffic collision.

 

On Wednesday, May 22, 2019, at around 11:07 a.m. deputies responded to a non-injury traffic collision on Hesperia Road and Cherry Hill Drive in the City of Victorville. While deputies were on their way to the scene of the crash, several callers reported that one of the involved drivers had a baseball bat and appeared to be threatening to assault the other driver. When they arrived they learned that the 17-year-old male (victim) and Ronald Earl Fredrick were involved in a collision. Following the collision, the juvenile driver attempted to exchange information with Fredrick, who attempted to leave the scene.
