Man Arrested in Chase That Ended at Commerce Casino Remains Behind Bars

He remained behind bars in lieu of $100,000 bail.

A domestic violence suspect who led officers on a 60-mile chase from Riverside to Commerce, where he was eventually arrested at a casino, remained behind bars Saturday.

Ricky Mitchell of Riverside, 43, had been wanted since Wednesday when a woman reported that he had committed acts of domestic violence against her, according to Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback.

"Since then, he has made numerous threats to harm the victim and her family, causing them to remain in fear,'' Railsback said.

On Friday morning, police found the suspect driving near the intersection of Van Buren Boulevard and Arlington Avenue, but he sped off when officers attempted to pull him over.

Police tailed the suspect south on Van Buren Boulevard then onto westbound State Route 91 into Corona, where the California Highway Patrol eventually took over the chase.

The pursuit continued southbound on State Route 55 and then northbound on Interstate 5.

The suspect exited the freeway and pulled into the Commerce Casino, where he was arrested, according to Railsback.

Mitchell was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside County on suspicion of domestic violence, stalking, criminal threats, willful endangerment to a child and felony evading a peace officer.

He remained behind bars in lieu of $100,000 bail.
