Man says the Claremont water made him do it

On Saturday, February 7 a Riverside man refused to take responsibility for a crime he said he didn’t commit; instead claiming it was something in the Claremont water. According to Lieutenant Mike Ciszek, officers responded to the 200 block of Yale Avenue around 2:30 p.m. following a call of a man flailing his arms and yelling, “f**k you!” to people outside a local eatery. Officers made contact with Brett Waylett who exhibited signs of being under the influence of a controlled substance. The 41-year-old was arrested near the Claremont train depot and told officers, “Tom must have put meth inside my water. I didn’t use any drugs today where I’d have to use my hands.”
