Story Details: Time – 12:20am Location – 15219 S Normandie, Gardena Handling Agencies – Gardena PD, LACOFD
An male driver unknown to residents of an apartment building drove his vehicle to the rear of the complex. It was reported that he hit at least one car and the alley wall while he was in the rear parking area. When he was finally able to turn around and attempt to leave the property, the electric property gate was closed. He tried to drive through it and was unsuccessful. He then passed out and was woken up by LACOFD firefighters. He became irate and physical with them and was quickly overpowered. A Gardena PD traffic unit will do a follow up with the suspect at an area hospital to determine if he was impaired.
