California Teenager Arrested for Attempted Carjacking During Illegal Street Takeover

A shock­ing inci­dent in High­land, Cal­i­for­nia, has result­ed in the arrest of a 15-year-old teenag­er. The teen alleged­ly attempt­ed to car­jack a sher­if­f’s deputy dur­ing a chaot­ic street takeover on May 11th.

Large Crowd Takes Over Intersection

Approx­i­mate­ly 100 peo­ple swarmed the inter­sec­tion of Vic­to­ria Avenue and High­land Avenue, shut­ting it down ille­gal­ly. Video footage cap­tured the unruly crowd van­dal­iz­ing the deputy’s patrol car, kick­ing, punch­ing, and even jump­ing on top of it, shat­ter­ing the windshield.

Attempt to Carjack Deputy

In a brazen move, the 15-year-old sus­pect opened the dri­ver’s side door of the patrol car in an appar­ent attempt to car­jack the deputy. For­tu­nate­ly, the deputy react­ed swift­ly, clos­ing the door and dri­ving away from the scene to avoid fur­ther violence.

Authorities Warn of Street Takeover Dangers

“Wit­ness­ing the video, I could­n’t help but imag­ine myself in the deputy’s shoes,” said San Bernardi­no Sher­if­f’s Pub­lic Infor­ma­tion Offi­cer Glo­ria Huer­ta. “The deputy’s deci­sion to dis­en­gage from the vio­lent mob like­ly pre­vent­ed a poten­tial­ly dead­ly encounter.”

The teenag­er was appre­hend­ed at his res­i­dence on May 23rd and faces charges of attempt­ed car­jack­ing and felony van­dal­ism. He is cur­rent­ly detained at the San Bernardi­no Coun­ty Juve­nile Hall.

Huer­ta empha­sized the dan­gers of street takeovers, stat­ing, “Par­tic­i­pa­tion in these events, whether as a spec­ta­tor or dri­ver, holds sig­nif­i­cant risks. You could face arrest, injure some­one, or even get hurt your­self. It’s sim­ply not worth it.”
