This is a press release from the Fortuna Police Department. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guiltyValerie Robinson:

On February 12, 2017 at approximately 10:15 AM, an officer was flagged down by a citizen reporting a female subject driving a vehicle with no tires in the area of Rohnerville Road and Kenmar Road.  At the same time, the department’s communications center also received a 911 call reporting the same.

The officer responded and upon arrival, located a female trying to drive a 2003 Toyota Sedan which was missing the left rear tire.  The female was continually pressing the accelerator trying to go forward but was unsuccessful.  The female then put the vehicle in reverse and backed into a patrol vehicle parked behind her.  Once striking the vehicle, the female continued pressing the accelerator, spinning her tires.  The female refused to comply with commands to stop or exit the vehicle.  After several attempts to get the female to exit the vehicle, Officers forced entry and a Taser was deployed.

Valerie Robinson age 43 of Eureka was taken into custody.  Robinson was transported to a local hospital for a medical clearance and then to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility where she was booked on the following charges:

  • VC 23152 – Driving Under the Influence
  • VC 23103 – Reckless Driving
  • PC 148(a) – Resisting Arrest
  • PC 1203 – Probation Violation (Currently on probation for assaulting law enforcement and evading)


  • Why on earth is she on probation for assault on a peace officer? Assemblyman Wood and Senator McGuire introduce some bills to keep people like this locked up!

    • ‘Partially Nude Woman Tried to Evade Deputy and Three CHP Officers Yesterday’
      July 8, 2015

      …the woman stopped and reversed towards one of the CHP vehicles and attempted to ram it. The officer driving also had to take evasive action to avoid being hit. Eventually, the woman attempted to make a U-turn, went off the bank, rolled the vehicle on its side and “lodged against a tree,” said Young.

      The woman “kept trying to drive [the vehicle] while it was on its side,” Young explained. When the officers attempted to take her into custody, she fought back. “She hit one CHP officer and broke his sunglasses,” Young said.

      Valerie Sue Robinson, age 42 from King Salmon, was eventually taken into custody though. Young says that the woman was charged with stealing a vehicle, resisting arrest in a violent manner, and assault with a deadly weapon (two times–because of the alleged attempts to ram the officers in their vehicles.)

  • We are not dealing with the source of this problem. The Drug Labs and the people manufacturing these controlled substances.

    There is no more Federal funding to actually close down the labs. This is a national crisis we are in the midst of because of the backing off of the “War Against Drugs”, since 2012. When you understand that your police force operates on money, just like any other business, you will see the problems at hand, and why the manufacture of these controlled substances aren’t being dealt with!

    During these cutbacks unfortunately the enforcement that is the most costly and drains their resources, goes away first. Not a pretty picture, especially if you have a meth lab in your neighborhood! Many of the maladies that a meth user faces will also affect the innocent neighbors in range of the chemicals released during manufacture of the drug. Actually the chemicals and gases released are more toxic than the meth that is produced.

    We again need to see the felony, “H.S. 11379.6, Manufacturing a Controlled Substance”, enacted and again being enforced to the maximum. With contaminated air, water, and food nothing else will really matter, as you will loose your health. It’s time now to get our priorities straight with this major problem and find the funding to address this major predicament we are in.

    Keep your eyes open and be aware of illegal activities that might be going on in your neighborhood. Communicate with each other when you spot a potential problem. Stay alert.

  • Yep. Shes a mess. My prayers go to her? Remember, it’s better to treat drug problems with jobs and support than with jail. We backed off on the war on drugs because it was a waste of money, but your trumpster will bring it back, so dont worry.

  • Those are a Hard 43 years. So sad, addiction is the Devil!

  • Addiction is the ultimate weakness

  • Accountability! Who’s going to pay for the damaged cop car? They should take everything this women has. I assume she don’t have much. It’s so great to know that hard working tax paying citizens get to pay for this women’s indiscretions. Take her license for life. Make her get a job and repay the cost of the damages she caused, and then some to make her think twice before doing something stupid again. If sentences for crimes were much worse than the crimes themselves, then maybe these worthless leeches wouldn’t commit crimes.

  • Similar story out of Calaveras County last year. The woman was so wasted on opiods, driving on rims, she didn’t even realize her car was on fire. Sparks from the rims started multiple fires on both sides of the road. The area was a tinderbox after years of drought. Butte Fire the previous year burned out 100s of Calaveras and Amador County residents, and 72,000+ acres.

    The guy who drove in front of her car, forcing her to stop and then pulled her out of the burning vehicle, saving her life, is a member of the local cannabis association. He and other members of the association that lived nearby put out several of the fires. CalFire had to use copter drops to put out all of the fires; 450 acres burned. Very fortunately, no lives lost and mimimal property damage; iirc, one garage burned down. If he hadn’t stopped her forward progress up that road, it could have been another catastrophic fire.


  • I thank God she doesn’t live next to me and I feel bad for the people who have to live next to her.

  • This lady has had a drinking problem for a long time. Shes highly highly unpredictable too. So kudos to law enforcement for getting her under control.

    I was running a show a number of years back at a casino, and she came up to me out of the blue while (didnt realize she was running from security) first tried to throw all the sound equipment on the ground than went after me.

  • JFC - don't be an asshole

    Poor lady. I hope she finds her way out soon.
