Sideshow Participant Arrested After Leading Officers on One Minute Pursuit

At about 10:49 pm Saturday night, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported sideshow in progress at Wakefield Elementary School, 400 South Avenue, Turlock.

When officers arrived on scene, they found an active sideshow in the roadway directly in front of the school with a group of over fifty pedestrians blocking the roadway.

Officers received information from the Ceres Police Department that the same group was in their city and that the participants had thrown bricks and rocks at officers’ vehicles, so the Turlock Police Department watch commander advised his officers to keep their distance.

Officers set up in perimeter positions, waiting for the group to begin dispersing from the area so that they could follow them and conduct traffic stops on them when there’s way less of them around. As officers were waiting, they continued to observe the group doing burnouts and donuts in front of the school, launching off aerial fireworks.

As the group began to disperse, a Turlock Police sergeant near the intersection of Bethany Avenue and Lewis Street, observed a vehicle violate the California Vehicle Code, so he attempted to make a traffic stop on it. The vehicle failed to yield and a pursuit ensued.

The pursuit lasted less than a minute, ending with the vehicle coming to a stop on Bernell Avenue just east of South Orange Street.

Officers conducted a high risk stop and removed the vehicle’s driver from the vehicle at gunpoint. He was identified as Salvador Mejia, 26, of Los Angeles.

Mejia was arrested and released on a citation on charges of reckless driving and flight from a peace officer. His vehicle was also impounded.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
