INCIDENT: Vandalism, Evading a Peace Officer with Disregard for Safety, Driving Under the Influence

Summary

On January 18, 2018, deputies from the Victorville Police Department responded to investigate suspicious circumstances in the 13100 block of Flint Lane. Multiple residents reported hearing a car horn sound several times and windows of their residences being broken. They then witnessed a female in a white BMW driving erratically through the neighborhood.

Deputies arriving at the scene saw the BMW leaving, at a high rate of speed. A traffic stop was initiated, with the deputy activating the red lights and siren on his marked patrol unit. However, the suspect failed to yield. The suspect, later identified as 22-year old Amber Rose Tyson, led deputies on a 40-mile pursuit. During the pursuit, Tyson failed to yield at several stop signs and red lights, while traveling at high rates of speed. She entered the southbound 15 freeway, driving erratically and reaching high rates of speed. A deputy was able to initiate a successful pursuit intervention technique (PIT) when Tyson was forced to slow her vehicle, due to semi-trucks traveling ahead of her. The pursuit came to an end south of the Foothill Boulevard off-ramp in Rancho Cucamonga. No injuries were sustained as a result of the incident.

Tyson was arrested and booked into the West Valley Detention Center on charges of vandalism, evading a Peace Officer, and driving under the influence of alcohol. She is scheduled to appear in Victorville Superior Court on January 22, 2018, and is being held in lieu of $105,000.00 bail.
