TWO ARRESTED AFTER HIGH SPEED MOTORCYCLE PURSUIT AND CRASH

Two Twentynine Palms residents were arrested Wednesday morning following a high-speed chase on Highway 62 and through Yucca Valley neighborhoods at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour. According to CHP and Sheriff reports, shortly before 7 a.m. yesterday, Jason Yoho, 31, was riding a Suzuki GSXR 750 motorcycle eastbound on Highway 62 near Hoopa Trail when a westbound CHP patrol unit clocked him at 120 miles per hour. The CHP officer began a pursuit, but lost him when Yoho turned on to Kickapoo Trail in Yucca Valley, and then eastbound on Onaga Trail. Yoho sped down Onaga at speeds up to 100 miles per hour, going through three school zones—Yucca Valley Elementary, Yucca Valley High School, and Onaga Middle School—just as the school day was beginning. A deputy in an unmarked Sheriff’s patrol car caught up to Yoho near Onaga Trail and Palomar and followed him back to the highway, where Yoho continued eastbound, pursued by Sheriff deputies and CHP officers, again at speeds of 120 miles per hour through Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree. Just east of Lear Avenue in Twentynine Palms, Yoho took his motorcycle into the desert south of the highway. As Yoho attempted to ride over a dirt berm back onto the highway at Desert Quail, the motorcycle went down, dropping Yoho and his female passenger, Teala Campbell, 26, also of Twentynine Palms. Deputies arrested Jason Yoho for investigation of felony failure to yield, transporting narcotics, possession of methamphetamine, and manufacturing narcotics. Teala Campbell was arrested for investigation of possession of narcotics and manufacturing narcotics. They were booked into the Morongo Basin Jail with their bail set at $500,000 each.
