The “shirtless and sweaty” Baldwin Park School Board member who was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism and driving under the influence won’t face charges — just yet, according to a story by Tania Chatila.
Interestingly enough someone familiar with the case predicted this outcome about two weeks ago. That person told me that the family who originally called Baldwin Park’s 911 won’t testify that Corona was on their doorstep or that Corona broke their window. That person also said that the DAs office would have very little interest in prosecuting the case period.
Interestingly enough, police found Corona’s School District issued cell phone on the doorstep of the vandalized home. I’ve been told that he admitted doing the vandalism but later recanted and said he didn’t know where he was or how he got to the police station after his arrest. It seems like that would be enmough to prosecute…
There are also rumors about Corona’s absence from several school board meetings and talk of other run-ins with local law enforcement.
Here’s a snippet:
BALDWIN PARK – The District Attorney’s office has declined to file criminal charges against school board member Sergio Corona, officials said.
Police say they intend to follow-up of the results of a toxicology report before resubmitting the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney, Baldwin Park police Lt. Jospeh Cowan said.
The case stems from a May 22 arrest in which Corona was Tased by police after allegedly breaking the windows of a home. According to a police report, Corona admitted to having smoked methamphetamine and marijuana earlier in the night.
