Probationer Jose Luis Lopez, 30, and parolee Carlos Santos Montenegro, 21, were booked into Victor Valley Jail on Tuesday.
Authorities said the arrest of Lopez illustrates some of the problems with community supervision mandated by Assembly Bill 109.
The men allegedly drove up to a home in the 16000 block of Pine Street Tuesday afternoon and shot into the home with a rifle, according to a press release.
The men then fled the location.
According to Hesperia station investigators, the shooting was in retaliation for a previous incident.
SMASH Gang Team Deputy James Rangel and Motor Deputy Brenden Motley spotted the fleeing Honda near Main Street and Third Avenue and attempted to stop the vehicle, later determined to have been driven by Montenegro, officials said. Lopez was a passenger.
Montenegro refused to stop and led deputies on a pursuit through city streets. At one point, Montenegro reportedly used the Honda to ram a sheriff's patrol unit before losing control near Olive Street and First Avenue.
Both men were booked for attempted murder.
Authorities learned Lopez - who they say has an extensive arrest record - had been released from state prison and placed on post-release community supervision through AB 109 on Feb. 21, Chris Condon, spokesman for County Probation, said.
"We attempted to contact him but couldn't locate him at his address (in Hesperia,)" Condon said.
After securing an arrest warrant for Lopez, he was picked up on May 4, records show.
At that time, probation officials petitioned the court to place Lopez on a 180-day revocation essentially sending him back into custody for 180 days, Condon explained.
"The court denied our request and placed him back on community supervision and he failed to report to us again," Condon said.
Lopez was arrested on June 16 and again on June 25 for violations of his probation terms.
"His last arrest came after he ran from deputies during a routine pedestrian check in Hesperia," Condon stated. "We're seeing some great successes with AB 109 but clearly there are some people that are not suitable for (community supervision.) All we can do is do the best job we can to supervise them."
Since Oct. 1, 2011, when AB 109 went into action, a total of 3,054 offenders were released to county probation for community supervision. Out of those offenders, 606 - or just under 20 percent - have been arrested for new offenses. That included 489 felonies and 117 misdemeanors.
