HESPERIA • A Hesperia man is behind bars after he ran his vehicle into his former girlfriend's car and threatened to kill her, her current boyfriend and her children, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Hesperia station officials said Wednesday.
William Ellis Winston, 32, was arrested at a home in the 7600 block of Peach Avenue on Tuesday morning, a day after Winston reportedly threatened to kill his former girlfriend and everyone in her home, according to Hesperia authorities.
At about 1 a.m. Monday, sheriff's officials received a call from the woman stating Winston, who was visiting her and her new boyfriend at their home, had been involved in a heated argument with the two and rammed his vehicle into hers, pushing it into the garage where she and boyfriend were standing, sheriff's officials said. Winston then later called her and left a message threatening to kill her, her children and anyone else at the home, according to reports.
Tuesday, Deputy Gerania Navarro and Deputy Gerardo Moreno located Winston at the Peach Avenue address and arrested him for assault with a deadly weapon and for making criminal threats.
Winston is being held at the Victor Valley Station on $50,000 bail and is due in court Thursday.
