Fairfax County Police Fairfax County Police have arrested a Reston man who allegedly hit a marked police car — and then fled the scene and led police on a chase — in Reston early on Feb. 15.

Police said an officer in a marked police car was heading southbound on Reston Parkway about 1:50 a.m. on Feb. 15 and was struck by a 2002 Toyota RAV4 at the intersection of New Dominion Parkway.

After the collision, the Toyota continued to travel east on Temporary Road, fleeing the scene of the crash. The involved officer was able to follow the Toyota where the driver eventually exited his vehicle and fled on foot near the 11600 block of Vantage Hill Road, police said.

Responding officers located the driver and arrested him. Rigoberto A. Cruz, 38, of Reston, was charged with felony hit and run, felony DWI, disregarding a signal to stop by law enforcement, and refusal to submit to blood or breath test.

    But are they going to check his immigration status?

    • June Smith

      Not in Fairfax … Fairfax is a sanctuary county


        The former police chief told me that they do confirm immigration status and info is reported to ICE, but that info is not available to the public.

    Chuck, if you ask that question you are a racist. He probably is an illegal. Vantage Hill area is full of them.

    • Chuck Morningwood

      Yeah, but he’s being charged with a couple of felonies, which makes him deportable.

    • John Galt

      Why is he ‘probably an illegal’ and what evidence do you have that Vantage hill is full of “them” (illegals?) ?


        Because I buy my pot oil there from an illegal.


        I have glaucoma. Wink.

    Its sad that racism still lives. People like you guys disqust me.

    • Ming the Merciless

      The law… raciss!
      Holding people responsible for their actions… raciss!

      Fight the power, Jared, fight the power!

    Nice job, racists. I had always hoped you idiots lived somewhere other than Reston. Very disappointing to hear that you’re in my community.

    • Ming the Merciless

      But you’re fine with drunken hit-and-run drivers, right? You welcome them to our community?

      • John Galt

        Only illegals are hit and run drunk drivers?

        • Ming the Merciless

          Illegals are massively overrepresented in DUI arrests relative to their numbers in the entire population. Even a mouth-breather like you should be able to connect the dots here.

        And it’s not just any reckless DUI who hits and runs on a police cruiser, then flees his vehicle on foot!

        Es muy especial!

    • Chuck Morningwood

      It’s a dirty job, ML BJ, but somebody’s gotta do it.

  • Vina Hutchinson

    I don’t care about his immigration status; the felony hit and run combined with the DWI alone should net him some jail time. There are far too many hit and run accidents in Reston. You’d think these people learned to drive on dodge’em cars at the county fair.

    • Bah

      They “learned” to “drive” in the Third World, where human life is cheap and traffic laws, when they exist at all, are ignored.

  • Bah

    Rigo Cruz has also got a bankruptcy and a foreclosure to his name. But hey, hit-and-run DUIs and defaulting on enormous debts are just some of the glorious benefits of increased diversity. If he has kids in the public school system infecting the other kids with foul Third World diseases, why, that would be the trifecta!

  • Bah

    illegal alien status means he is supposed to be doing his damage elswhere and NOT here at all.

    Every crime they commit is an unforced error – it didn’t have to happen. But apparently no price is too high to make the liberals happy and avoid the nasty stigma of “racism”. The Leftist Moloch is as insatiable as ever!

    Finally had a chance to register so I could comment. Lived in Vantage Hill on and off for 20 years and never met an illegal there except those working on the lawns. Bojangler, the address where he left his vehicle was the bottom of a hill and a dead end. If the guy who hit the policeman lived in VH he would have known that and would not have gone that way. Please hold back your lack of knowledge about most things.
