Homeless Man Arrested By Santa Monica Police For Failing To Follow Orders:

A homeless man was arrested on Saturday, April 25, after resisting arrest and failing to follow orders.

An officer of the Santa Monica Police Department was called out to attend to a fight in progress at 1:30 pm at the intersection of Euclid Avenue and Pico Boulevard.

When the officer arrived he witnessed a man holding a stick in his hand and another male yelling and cursing at this man.

The officer took the yelling man aside in order to find out what was going on.

The officer asked the yelling man what had happened – he claimed that the man with the stick had assaulted him.

The officer asked for some more details pertaining to the claimed assault to which the yelling man pointed at his hat, which at that time was situated in the middle of the street.

The man then said that he needed to get the hat, but the officers told him to leave it where it was for the time being and sit on the curb in order to protect him from getting hit by a car.

However, the man insisted that he had to get the hat immediately and stepped off the curb and into the number two lane of Pico Boulevard.

The officer, concerned for the man’s safety, grabbed him but a struggle ensued as the man was determined to save his hat.

The officer eventually restrained the yelling man and escorted him back to the sidewalk, sans hat.

The officer arrested the yelling man for resisting arrest and leaving a curb or place of safety to walk into the path of a vehicle. Bail for this 20-year-old homeless man was set at $10,000.
