Two teenagers were arrested for allegedly shooting a firearm at a street sign and possessing alcohol in the middle of the night in Glendale, police said Tuesday.
A patrol sergeant heard gunshots and found the two 18-year-olds, Weston Dunkin-Butcher of Glendale and John Koenig of Los Angeles, at about 2:30 a.m. Friday standing near a parked vehicle with a spent bullet casing on the ground in the area of Camino San Rafael and Emerald Isle Drive, Glendale Police Sgt. Christian Hauptmann said.
The teens were detained, and Dunkin-Butcher admitted to firing several rounds at a street sign down a hillside, according to Hauptmann. A firearm was found in the trunk of Dunkin-Butcher’s vehicle, and both teens were arrested on suspicion of illegally discharging a firearm and underage possession of alcohol, he said.
Dunkin-Butcher was also arrested for allegedly possessing a fake ID.
