On February 7, 2018, deputies from Victorville Police Department responded to a man down call at Amethyst Road and Bear Valley Road. The man was reported to be breathing but not responsive.

Deputies and medical personnel arriving on scene found the man, later identified as Barron Brandon, lying on the ground unconscious. Once Brandon awoke, he became uncooperative and assaulted a deputy and fled on foot from the scene. Deputies conducted an extensive search of the surrounding area, and Brandon was located at a residence in the 12200 block of Eugene Road. After a brief struggle, Brandon was taken into custody and showed signs of being under the influence of a stimulant.
