It was clearly the wrong room for a suspected graffiti vandal to target.
Sheriff’s officials say 22-year-old Joshua Vasquez was arrested Friday after he allegedly tried to deface a glass door leading into a City of Commerce meeting room where over 100 Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies and police officers were attending a training class.
Sheriff’s Captain Mike Parker says the officers could see the young man through the glass door, but he could not see them. Parker says Vasquez began to open the door to etch the inside when he suddenly saw dozens of officers running toward him.
Parker says Vasquez turned and fled with at least 40 officers in pursuit. He tripped and fell a short distance away and was quickly taken into custody.
