Being arrested once is the norm, but a Southern California man was arrested 3 times in a 16 hour period on Sunday.
James Langdon was first arrested around 3 a.m. in Glendale in Los Angeles after he allegedly led police on a foot pursuit when officers tried to cite him for jaywalking. The 47-year old man was arrested for obstruction and taken to a local hospital after he requested medical attention. He was later released and ordered to appear in court at a later date.
A few hours later, Langdon was arrested for a second time for trespassing inside a Glendale business. An employee said they found him trying to enter a closed area with a screwdriver. He was taken by police, but released three hours later due to the county’s emergency “zero-dollar” bail order.
Once again officers arrested Langdon for the third time, when there were reports of him breaking in an apartment. Langdon was found in the hallway near the apartment, where a resident reported their door was left ajar and things had been moved and rummaged through.
When Langdon saw officers, he allegedly ran back into the empty apartment and barricaded himself inside. Officers set up a perimeter and after an officer went into the apartment to negotiate his exit, Langdon was arrested for felony vandalism. He caused around $6,000 in damage to the apartment and building, police said.
Langdon remained in jail on $150,000 bail after his third arrest.
