VV man gets probation for public scuffle with girlfriend

SAN BERNARDINO • A Victorville man was put on three years probation Monday after a fight with his girlfriend at a Rancho Cucamonga restaurant turned violent.

Francisco Quintero, 39, accepted the prosecution’s offer and pleaded guilty to making criminal threats and possessing a destructive device. Judge Bridgid McCann sentenced him immediately based on the plea bargain.

Quintero was released from jail at 12:52 p.m. Monday, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's website.

Quintero and the victim were at the restaurant late in the evening of May 26 when they began arguing, according to sheriff’s officials. The fight became physical and Quintero refused to let the victim leave.

He threatened to kill the victim’s family and took her cellphone before he left the restaurant and drove home to Victorville, officials said.
