    Officer Mistakenly Shoots Man During Traffic Stop
    RIVERSIDE A Mira Loma man was recovering Sunday from a gunshot wound he suffered when a Victorville police officer accidentally fired his weapon during a traffic stop, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

    Hugo Anaya, 23, of Mira Loma, was a passenger in a car spotted late Friday pulling high-speed, tire-screeching donuts for a crowd of several hundred people in a Victorville hardware store parking lot, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller and other sheriff's officials.

    The Victorville officer, who is also a sheriff's deputy, gave chase and stopped the car at a Bear Valley Road on-ramp to southbound Interstate 15, sheriff's officials said.

    Anaya was in the front passenger seat of the stopped car when the Victorville officer drew his weapon and began giving verbal commands to Anaya and the car's driver, Javier Ortiz, 29, of San Bernardino.

    The Victorville officer accidentally fired his weapon, striking the rear of the car, and the projectile passed through the car and struck Anaya's left hand, according to sheriff's department accounts.

    Ortiz was arrested on a charge of reckless driving. Anaya was treated at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton and released.

    Sheriff's deputies who discharge their weapons in the line of duty are routinely placed on paid administrative leave, Miller said Sunday in a phone interview. But it was not clear Sunday whether the Victorville officer was placed on leave, Miller said.

    The city of Victorville contracts with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department for law enforcement services, Miller said. All Victorville police are employees of the Sheriff's Department.

    I know victorville. It's pretty small town by Californaia standards. Not a lot for kids to do. Plus you know the "news" they like to exagerate.

    The fact is, "Keep your fucking finger off the trigger until your ready to put a hole in something.
