SIMI VALLEY, Calif. — A man annoyed by a noisy car alarm fired at least three bullets into a Toyota Camry, silencing the alarm but getting arrested in the process.
David Owen Rye, 48, was booked for investigation of reckless discharge of a firearm and felony vandalism, Sgt. John Adamczyk said. He allegedly told officers he grabbed his handgun and went out to stop the alarm.
The car’s owner was visiting a friend when he heard the gunfire at about 10 p.m. Tuesday.
Police were called to the Yosemite Avenue apartment building and Rye was ordered out of his apartment by an officer with a bullhorn. A Los Angeles Police Department helicopter also responded.
