On Thursday, November 23, 2017, a deputy from the Victorville Police Department conducted a traffic stop near the intersection of Maverick Place and El Evado Road. When the deputy asked the driver, Darren Lamar Scott, to exit the vehicle he refused.

Scott fled on foot jumping fences through the neighborhood. As the deputy came over a fence Scott hit him with a heavy object, causing injury to his back. Due to the injury, the deputy was unable to continue following Scott, who fled the scene. The deputy was transported to a local hospital for treatment and is now recovering at home.
