A man with a penchant for panini went ballistic when employees tried to take away his sandwich. According to Lieutenant Mike Ciszek, the male suspect entered Starbucks located on the 200 block of Yale Street and placed a Panini inside the left inner pocket of his jacket without paying for it. When confronted by members of the staff, the man became angry and aggressive, knocking over a display of plastic cups. As the cups flew onto customers inside the coffee house, the suspect fled the scene in a light blue or teal sedan. The sandwich is valued at $5.95 and has not been recovered. The suspect remains at large.

Erratic driving was cause for concern for one Good Samaritan who called police after following a suspected DUI driver on the 210 Freeway. Around 6 p.m., an eyewitness called police and followed Tracey Mayer as she allegedly swerved between lanes and drove onto the shoulder at speeds ranging from 5 to 75 miles per hour. After the 31-year-old suspect exited the interstate at Towne Avenue, she proceeded to sit through three phases of a light cycle at the traffic signal before police arrived to find her asleep behind the wheel. Officers conducted a field sobriety test and determined the Glendora woman was impaired. She was arrested and later released on $5,000 bail.

A teen with a car full of cannabis gives new meaning to the word “dope” after claiming to be a marijuana dispensary deliveryman and then failing to provide proof of employment. Dillion Rust was spotted in a church parking lot and approached by police around 6 a.m. after smelling the odor of marijuana coming from his vehicle. The 19-year-old told police he delivered for a marijuana dispensary and a search of his car revealed he was well stocked with 13 plastic bags containing marijuana, baked goods containing marijuana, a vaporizer containing a black tar-like liquid concentrated cannabis and $445 in cash. Mr. Rust was unable to provide any documentation that he worked for a dispensary or that he was allowed to possess such a large amount of marijuana. The Inglewood man was arrested and released on $20,000 bail.

Saying goodnight was really hard for one man who didn’t know when to call it quits and ended his evening in the Claremont jail. Travis Livingston was seen drinking at The Press early in the night and when he refused to leave around 12:30 a.m., Claremont police arrived on scene. The 30-year-old smelled of alcohol, appeared flushed and his eyes were red when officers ran him through the system, revealing an outstanding warrant. The Montclair man was taken to the station for public intoxication and the outstanding warrant. He was later released on $10,250 bail.
