Posted by Fay Arfa | Oct 06, 2017 | 0 Comments

A Rancho Cucamonga man was sentenced today to three years in state prison for leading police on a high-speed pursuit that ended at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Robert DuFour said Tony Carl Calloway Jr., 24, pleaded no contest today to one felony count of fleeing a pursuing peace officer's motor vehicle while driving recklessly.

On March 9, the defendant stole a car in Colton. He was later spotted by police driving the stolen vehicle on the 101 Freeway near Parkway Calabasas, the prosecutor said. An approximately hour-long pursuit ensued and ended in Hollywood with police deploying spike strips.

When the pursuit ended, the defendant lit a cigarette and refused orders to exit the vehicle before eventually being arrested, the prosecutor added.
