On Saturday, May 17, 2014 deputies from the Yucaipa Police Department responded to a disturbance call of a motorcycle speeding on Avenue E, between 13th and 14th Streets. Upon arrival, a deputy saw a blue, Yamaha quad ATV, traveling east on Avenue E. The deputy activated his lights and siren and attempted to stop the vehicle. The suspect rider (later identified as Hernandez) continued east on Avenue E at a high rate of speed.  He made several turns onto other cross streets and ran several stop signs in an attempt to elude the deputy. Ultimately, Hernandez returned to the 32000 Block of Ave E, where he finally stopped and the pursuit was terminated. The pursuit covered a distance of approximately 1.5 miles, during which Hernandez had a 15yo male juvenile rider on the back of the quad the entire time. During the pursuit, Hernandez reached speeds in excess of 60 MPH and narrowly missed colliding with several vehicles. Upon termination of the pursuit, Hernandez was taken into custody without further incident. He was arrested and booked at Central Detention Center for Felony Evading and Child Endangerment.
