Man Arrested After Police Chase

Riverside, Ca- Riverside police Officers pursued a stolen car, which collided with a center divider at Collett and Riverwalk in the City of Riverside. The driver of the vehicle, 30-year old Tony Angulo from the City of Corona, was arrested after officers briefly chased him into a dirt field.

Officers discovered a firearm and bullet casing at the scene.  Detectives responded to conduct an investigation into the possibility that Angulo shot at the pursuing officers. The officers were not certain if Angulo had actually shot at them. No officers were injured in the incident.

Tony Angulo was arrested and booked for evading police officers and for having an outstanding felony arrest warrant among other charges. The incident is currently being investigated.
