    Man Accused of Sending Threatening Texts to Wife Leads Chase

    "I'm a gambler." That's what a pursuit driver told NBC4's Patrick Healy after leading a dangerous tricounty pursuit that ended at Commerce Casino. Patrick Healy reports for the NBC4 News at 4 p.m. Friday, May 31, 2019.

    A man wanted in connection with a domestic violence incident led a high-speed chase in Riverside, Orange and Los Angeles counties Friday afternoon before he was taken into custody near the Commerce Casino.

    The driver, behind the wheel of a red Dodge Dart, led the pursuit that began in the Riverside area, heading westbound on the 91 Freeway toward Orange County.

    By 12:20 p.m., the chase crossed the Orange County line, with the driver tossing items out the window. 

    Riverside police said officers were surveying the man Thursday night amid a domestic violence investigation. Officers spotted him Friday around noon, and tried to pull him over at Van Buren Boulevard and Arlington Avenue. He refused to pull over, and officers began chasing the driver.

    The California Highway Patrol was assisting in the chase as the driver hit 106 mph, weaving in and out of traffic and even passing a sheriff's deputy vehicle as he entered Los Angeles County. 

    The driver ultimately pulled over into the Commerce Casino valet area, located at 6131 Telegraph Rd. in Commerce, and ran from the Dodge Dart. 

    A valet working at the casino pointed out the direction where the driver ran, and officers began chasing him through what appeared to be a shipping yard on Tubeway Avenue. 

    He was taken into custody just before 1 p.m. in a surprisingly peaceful ending to a dangerous high-speed chase.
