Arrest highlights AB 109 concerns

Published on June 29, 2013, in Realignment.

A deadly brawl and subsequent high-speed chase through Santa Maria that resulted in the arrest Sunday of an Oceano man who was out on the streets as a result of the California Public Safety Realignment Act, illustrates the threat posed by the law, according to local law enforcement. Joseph Munoz was arrested Sunday by Santa Maria police in connection with the death Friday of Joseph Luis Padilla, 25, of Nipomo.
