Details: 

On Saturday, September 29, 2018, at approximately 11:40 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the area of Agua Mansa Road and Brown Avenue, in Jurupa Valley regarding a large organized illegal sideshow. A sideshow is an informal demonstration of automotive stunts, which are typically held in vacant lots, public intersections, and freeways. 

When deputies arrived, they saw a silver 2006 Pontiac GTO, occupied by two male adults, driving erratically at the intersection. A deputy attempted to conduct a traffic enforcement stop on the vehicle. The vehicle yielded briefly and then fled the area nearly striking two Sheriff’s patrol vehicles. Shortly thereafter deputies came across a traffic collision and located the vehicle that earlier fled from deputies. The passenger succumbed to his injuries. 

Investigators assigned to the Jurupa Valley Station and officers from the California Highway Patrol responded to the scene and assumed the investigation. After an extensive investigation, the case was submitted to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office. An arrest warrant was issued for the driver, Christian Pinon, 20-year-old resident of Pomona. 

On Thursday, March 26, 2020, investigators assigned to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department’s Major Crimes Unit located Pinon in Orange County. Pinon was taken into custody without incident and was booked into Riverside County Jail for vehicular homicide, assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer and evading.
