LOS ANGELES — When LACSD deputies attempted to stop a driver on February 20, he drove away and, in doing so, struck a pedestrian and a parked car. The injured pedestrian suffered broken ribs.
Then, 29-year-old Moises Anthony Salais jumped out of his car and tried to run away, but was caught and arrested.
On Wednesday, Salais was arraigned on charges of “hitting a pedestrian with a vehicle while fleeing authorities.”
The suspect has prior felony convictions that include assault with a deadly weapon in 2009, corporal injury in 2012, and assault with a firearm in 2013.
Because of these priors, Salais’ bail was set at $1.1 million. If convicted, he faces 31 years to life in state prison.
