RESISTING, PUBLIC INTOX.: On July 29 at 6:48 a.m. in the area of Mesa Road an Topaz Road, 33-year-old Charles Patrick Robinson of Lucerne Valley led deputies on a 20-minute chase through the neighborhood before being arrested on suspicion of resisting/obstructing a peace officer and public intoxication.
According to the deputy’s report, Robinson had been drinking all night and was outside with another man on Mesa road. When Robinson saw a patrol car coming down the street, he immediately ran away though the desert, the deputy’s report stated.
