A man armed with a weapon who threatened at least one person then barricaded himself inside a Mar Vista apartment today was arrested, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed.

42-Year-Old Man Arrested For Vandalizing 5 Cars In Northridge

Los Angeles Police Department officers arrested a man who allegedly vandalized a handful of cars in Northridge. They were called to the scene at around 8 a.m. on Monday morning after learning that the suspect was possibly vandalizing a car in the 18900 block of Bahama Street, according to officers. After the arrest, it appeared that at least five vehicles had their windows smashed and some body damage. Officers could not locate the suspect at first but eventually saw him running into a nearby home.

Despite the damage, most of the community displayed an understanding feeling after learning that the man lived on their street.

California Man Facing 4 Years After Posting Nude Photos Of Ex-Girlfriend

A 52-year-old man in Ventura County could be spending nearly four years in prison after a jury convicted him of stalking, extorting and distributing intimate nude photos of his ex-girlfriend, authorities announced Thursday. Jason Anthony Arnold, a resident of Simi Valley, and his former girlfriend broke up in 2019, at which point prosecutors say the 52-year-old launched a terrifying campaign of threats and harassment that lasted from November of that year to March 2020. After demanding more than $50,000 from the victim, Arnold posted the nude photographs around her workplace and at the apartment complex of her new boyfriend when he failed to receive the money. “A sex advertisement accompanied the photos, along with the victim’s home address, business address and personal cellphone number,” officials with the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release. Arnold also sent the photographs directly to the victim’s mother, brother and new boyfriend. 


‘I Will Shoot Them All To Death’: Man Threatens Wisconsin Officers Before Fatal OIS

The Winnebago County district attorney has released body and dash camera footage of an officer-involved shooting that occurred after a man told a dispatcher he would shoot at police, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. The Feb. 2 incident began when North Fond du Lac Police Sgt. Bryce LaLuzerne conducted a traffic stop, pulling over Lawrence M. Drennan, 36, for not having his taillights on, according to the report. Dash camera video shows that Drennan initially complied with the stop, pulling over and answering questions as the officer spoke to him. When LaLuzerne asked Drennan to step out of the car, Drennan said he would not, shifted his car into drive and fled the stop. LaLuzerne then pursued Drennan, calling other officers into the pursuit as Drennan fled down a nearly empty freeway. During the pursuit, Drennan called 911 and spoke with dispatchers. “If they stop me, I have a gun in here and I’m going to start shooting,” Drennan told the dispatcher. “If they stop me, I will shoot them all to death.” The dispatcher spoke to Drennan, attempting to press him for information about the weapon he claimed to have in the vehicle and persuade him to comply with officers. Drennan gave the dispatcher his name but would not say what kind of weapon he had. When asked why he wanted to use the gun, Drennan replied that he would not go back to jail.


Massachusetts Sheriff’s Office Welcomes New K-9 Named After Fallen Deputy

Dogs trained by the sheriff’s department are often used for crowd control, suspect searches or to sniff out narcotics. But the department’s newest dog is dedicated to “puppy love.” The primary responsibility of K-9 Pasky, a yellow Labrador, is “to provide comfort, care, and support to our dedicated staff,” said Essex County Sheriff Kevin Coppinger. K-9 Pasky is named after Deputy Sheriff Anthony “Pasky” Pasquarello, 37, who died of COVID-19 in December 2021. The Saugus resident was a 15-year veteran of the ECSD. “The passing of Deputy Pasquarello impacted this department greatly, especially our officers. He was a gentle being and always a friend to many,” Coppinger said. “We thought it was just so fitting to name our Comfort K-9 in memory of Anthony,” he said. Pasquarello’s mother Norine Pasquarello agreed. “I love that they named him Pasky. To me, it’s like a part of Anthony is still there,” said Norine Pasquarello. “My entire family thinks it’s absolutely wonderful.” K-9 Pasky will be on shift at three facilities, including the Lawrence Correctional Alternative Center, with his partner, Correctional Officer Christian Guzman, who lives in Southern New Hampshire.
