Loaded For Bear

Mentone, CA

Ever heard of Bear Spray?

It's mace. For bears.

Which means it's five times more concentrated than that shit the NYPD is spraying on Occupy Wall Street protesters. And we all know what that does now, don't we?

Now who might have bear mace? Why, people living near bears, of course. Like a woman who was out walking her dogs Sunday night near the San Bernardino National Forest, who then came home to find an intruder.

You can guess what happened next.

Yes, she maced him. With bear spray. He ran, got in his car and crashed it. Presumably because he was blind and screaming. When police arrived they found some of the woman's jewelry and possessions in his car and arrested him.

I bet you can't guess what happened after that.

Turns out that the intruder was LAPD Sergeant Lucien Daigle, 44, of the Olympic Division, an 18-year veteran of the department, father of six and owner of a real estate business, which in this market might be why he decided a little B&E wouldn't be a bad idea.

Daigle's been put on administrative leave pending both a criminal and an IA investigation, and is currently out on $125,000.00 bail, which the victim is none too keen about.

Burglar cops. Things must have really tanked for his real estate business. If this isn't an indication that the economy's in the shitter, I don't know what is.

Just wait for the follow-up... dollars to donuts he sues her for the bear spray and resulting crash.
