Hollywood Man Arrested For Drunk Shenanigans After Trying To Get Into Cirque Du Soleil: APB: It Was A Circus Act

On Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 6:50 p.m. officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were on patrol in Lot Number One in the North Beach parking lot when they were approached by the director of security for the Cirque du Soleil.

The director told them that a man had attempted to buy a ticket for the show, but that they had deemed this man too intoxicated to attend at that time.

The director told the officers that this man had last been seen walking around in the sand on the beach.

The officers went to the beach and found this man, and when they attempted to chat with him this man had become agitated and had shouted at them, instructing them to “test him” (what sort of test he desired was not made clear to the officers, just that he wanted them to conduct the test).

The officers detained this man and as they were attempting to identify him the man kicked one of the officers in the power leg (not wise). The officers responded to this kick by arresting this 26-year-old resident of Hollywood, California, and he was charged with resisting an officer and battery upon a police officer. His bail was set at $20,000, no doubt testing his ability to pay, one might surmise.

Editor’s Note: These reports are part of a regular police coverage series entitled “Alert Police Blotter” (APB), which injects some minor editorial into certain police activities in Santa Monica. Not all of the Mirror’s coverage of incidents involving police are portrayed in this manner. More serious crimes and police-related activities are regularly reported without editorial in the pages of the Santa Monica Mirror and its website, smmirror.com.
