People are arrested for some pretty strange crimes on a daily basis. From pulling guns on teenagers for damaging their Trump signs to farting, we thought we’d just about covered it all by this point. But when actual news sounds like it was written by The Onion, you know it has to be pretty special.
According to NBC Los Angeles, John W. Nuggent — not to be confused with that other crazy Nugent guy who grabs his dick at political rallies in front of thousands of people — has been blaring an air horn in the middle of the night and scaring the crap out of El Segundo residents in California for weeks. Police Lt. Ray Garcia described the noise as ” like a train coming through the neighborhood.” Unfortunately, like a bored high schooler with too much time on his hands, the perpetrator would often sound off and then “beat feet” before the police would arrive. So of course, once he was finally taken into custody after concerned residents heard the noises yet again around 4 a.m. on November 13 and made a citizens arrest, he took the following mugshot to rub in what a complete turd he is.
Nuggent was booked at El Segundo jail on a misdemeanor charge of suspicion of disturbing the peace Sunday morning. As for his car — a blue 2006 Chevrolet Aveo complete with all the suspected air horn equipment inside — it was impounded, hopefully never to be heard from again.
Lt. Garcia made a statement after the arrest confirming, “he’s been doing this for weeks, and we’ve been chasing him for weeks — but we got him.” Job well done, guys.
