Riverside — On Tuesday, attempted murder and other felony charges were filed against a truck driver who was charged with firing while traveling with a young girl to a Moreno Valley driver.
Abdi J. Reinaldo of Florida was arrested in the Coachella Valley last Thursday. In addition to the attempted murder, the 32-year-old defendant has been charged with two gun assaults and one charge for shooting a vehicle and one for intentional child atrocities.
Reynaldo was detained at Murrieta’s Southwest Detention Center in lieu of a $ 1 million bail.
California Highway Patrol Officer Juan Quintero said Reynard was traveling with a young girl at the time of the alleged shooting. Their interrelationships, if any, were unclear.
According to Quintello, Reynard was heading east on the Moreno Valley (60) highway through Heacock Street when he was furious with the driver for unspecified reasons around 5 pm Thursday.
The suspect pulled a pistol, fired two bullets at the car, and the two crew members were not injured, but were allegedly hit once.
According to Kintero, the driver headed east on Badlands and eventually joined Interstate 10 at the Sangorgonio Pass, and soon began chasing a large rig.
The victim called 911 and provided a semi-explanation, but when the man was talking to the dispatcher, Quintero said his cell phone signal was cut off.
As the vehicle approached the Palm Springs area, the signal was reestablished and the driver reported the location of the truck, CHP officials said. Several patrols gathered at the suspect and arrived at Bob Hope Drive near Rancho Mirage. The suspect stopped there and was detained without incident.
“Two pistols were placed inside a large rig,” Kintero said.
There was no word about where the truck driver went or where his trip began.
Reinaldo has not documented a felony conviction in Riverside County.
