Domestic violence suspect in custody following pursuit: PCSO

Authorities from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office have confirmed the apprehension of an individual after a pursuit culminating in the far reaches of the East Valley.

The pursuit unfolded subsequent to a distressing felony domestic violence incident that transpired in San Tan Valley on the morning of November 21, prompting deputies to seek a person they described as a “violent suspect.”

The suspect, later identified as 39-year-old Vincente Gallegos, was located in Mesa and, upon discovery, initiated a vehicular pursuit. The chase escalated as the suspect forcefully collided with one PCSO vehicle, engaged in a wrong-way confrontation with another patrol vehicle, and caused damage to a third patrol vehicle.

PCS0 officials reported that law enforcement successfully intercepted the suspect’s vehicle in the vicinity of a roundabout along State Route 88 in Apache Junction. Fortunately, while all deputies involved are undergoing precautionary checks, there have been no significant injuries reported among them.

As the situation unfolds, an active investigation remains underway to delve into the details and circumstances surrounding the pursuit and subsequent apprehension of the suspect.
