YUMA, AZ- Two men accused of fleeing from Yuma police after a high speed chase were in court Monday.

The Yuma County Attorneys Office failed to file charges against Luis Covarrubias on several counts including kidnapping and aggravated assault.

However, he remains in custody on a charge of unlawful flight of law enforcement for an outstanding arrest warrant for a domestic violence case out of San Luis.

Last week, a Yuma police officer spotted him inside a truck near 16th Street and 4th Avenue.

Following a short pursuit, and Covarrubias holding the driver at gunpoint, the truck crashed into the Bank of America sign on 4th Avenue.

Afterwards, all three occupants fled but were soon captured by police in the area.

One of those occupants was Anthony Raygoza, he was also wanted by law enforcement.

Raygoza has been charged with aggravated assault and endangerment.

Yuma police say on July 31, Raygoza almost struck two U.S. Marshall agents with a vehicle while they were attempting to arrest a fugitive in the 800 block of W. Westridge Drive in Yuma.

Both Covarrubias and Raygoza remain in jail on $50,000 bond.
