No Charges Filed Yet in Chantry Flats Standoff

Police say the investigation is ongoing.

Police have not filed charges against a man who allegedly tried to drive himself and a woman off a cliff before breaking into a Chantry Flats home and barricading himself from cops.

It remains unclear when or if detectives will file charges against 21-year-old Patrick Anthony Gonzalez.

"I don’t have a timeline as to when we will file the case," Lt. Colleen Flores said via e-mail. "Gonzalez is not in custody, and our detectives will present the case to the [District Attorney's Office] when they are ready."

She added the investigation is ongoing.

On Jan. 27, Gonzalez crashed his vehicle along Santa Anita Canyon Road in what police say was an attempt to kill himself and his unnamed female passenger, who walked away from the crash uninjured. Gonzalez then allegedly broke into an occupied home near the Santa Anita Dam and engaged police in a standoff that lasted several hours, and ended when a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department SWAT team stormed the home and took him into custody.

The home's residents managed to escape unscathed.
