On Dec. 2 at about 3:05 p.m., Santa Monica patrol officers received a call of a woman who had illegally entered an apartment in the 500 block of Colorado Avenue and refused to come out.
The resident of the apartment briefly left and kept his door unlocked. When he returned, he saw the suspect, Erin Bishop, inside. She began to act erratically and yelled at him to get out.
In fear of a confrontation, the victim resident exited his own apartment. Bishop locked the door behind him and refused to let him back in. When the officers arrived, she refused to open the door for them and refused to come out.
A locksmith was called and the lock was drilled out. Officers entered the apartment and removed Bishop, ultimately placing her under arrest for trespassing, several bench warrants and violating her probation. Bishop, 39, of Santa Monica, had bail set at $11,000.
