Armed transient sentenced to 90 days in jail


A transient has been sentenced to 90 days in Jail after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of exhibiting a deadly weapon, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said Wednesday.

Michael Clark, 61, was arrested earlier this month after he pulled a gun on a woman who asked him to leave her apartment complex.

“On Oct. 13 he pleaded no contest to one misdemeanor count each of exhibiting a deadly weapon and vandalism under $400,” DA spokesman Ricardo Santiago said Wednesday.  Santiago had no information about the vandalism.

“He was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 36 months summary probation,” he said.

Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station arrested Clark on Oct. 7.

“On Sept. 30, the victim contacted the suspect regarding his trespassing on private property,” Lt. Brenda Cambra who oversees the sheriff department’s Detective Section said at the time of the arrest.

“The suspect pointed a black handgun at the victim after being told to leave an apartment complex.

“The victim, who was in fear for her life, drove away and immediately reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Department.

“The suspect was located by deputies a couple days later and was arrested,” Cambra said.
