Incident of the day

On March 26 at approximately 10:50 p.m., a Santa Monica police officer was heading eastbound on Santa Monica Boulevard and stopped for a red traffic signal at 5th Street.

As the officer was waiting for the signal to change, he saw the suspect step off the sidewalk and walk eastbound across 5th Street despite the fact the crossing signal was red and vehicles traveling on 5th were approaching the intersection.

The officer stopped the suspect to write him a citation, but when the suspect saw the ticket book he began to argue and refused to sign it.

The officer and a sergeant tried to reason with the suspect, but he continued to refuse to sign the citation. The suspect was then taken into custody and transported to the Santa Monica jail, where he was later issued the citation for the violation and released.

Lambert D. Bunker, 27, homeless, was issued a citation.
