Los Angeles County deputies arrested a man for walking into a US Marine Corps recruiting center and brandishing a toy gun Tuesday morning.
According to the LA Times, officials say 23-year-old transient Angel Cruz walked in and out of the Lancaster-based recruiting center several times before he was asked to leave for being a nuisance.
Upon the final request for him to leave, Cruz lifted his shirt and brandished a firearm tucked in his waistband.
According to Deputy Joshua Stamsek, Cruz was later found walking away from the area and detained after deputies found a toy gun on his person, which ultimately turned out to be a toy that was painted black.
Cruz was later arrested on suspicion of brandishing an imitation firearm, being under the influence of a controlled substance and having an outstanding warrant for a DUI. He is currently being held on a $145,000 bond.
