Yesterday afternoon’s incident happened around 4:15 p.m., when a City of Hemet officer attempted to stop a grey BMW that was traveling south on N. Kirby St. approaching Florida Ave.

The driver refused to yield to the officer’s lights and siren and continued traveling southbound on Kirby to Acacia, where the vehicle turned left, heading east.

The BMW continued to the 2200 block of W. Acacia before other patrol vehicles converged on the area, at which time the driver yielded, pulling over just before the Villa Del Sol Mobile Estates.

Officers determined the driver was unlicensed and that the BMW was not registered. Officials subsequently towed the sedan.

Both juveniles were ultimately taken into custody; however it was not immediately known if they were arrested or what charges they could be facing. Citing the juvenile’s ages, officials have not released any information regarding the traffic stop or the status of the pair.
