Student Gets Lesson in Petty Charges Arrest

INGLEWOOD, CA—On slow news days, petty stories like students getting stopped and arrested for failure to use turn signals are the lead stories, and on slow quota days, what may otherwise be petty citations turn into actual arrests.

Robert Chamberlain, 22, was apprehended by Inglewood police officers on Saturday, April 18 at approximately 8:30 p.m. at the intersection of 102nd Street and Yukon Avenue in Inglewood. The area is a dilapidated industrial area near a Costco and UPS warehouse, and it is immediately south of Century Boulevard where the Hollywood Park Casino is located, as well as the possible future site for an 80,000-seat sports stadium that may be built by Rams owner Stan Kroenke.

The self-proclaimed student was presumably stopped for failing to use a turn signal (22107VC). He was also charged with failure to have a driver’s license in his possession (12951(A)VC), failure to properly fasten his seatbelt (27315(D)VC) and failure to present identification (40302(A)VC). It was not his first go-round with the law.  In November of last year he was popped for a marijuana possession charge.

Total bail for the heinous crimes was a whopping $140; each violation was $35 each.

Despite the seemingly petty violations and bail amounts, the bail amounts will be greatly compounded with court fees, and he is almost sure to pay a great deal in order to obtain permission from Inglewood Police Department to thereafter go to the impound lot to retrieve his vehicle, that was most likely impounded.
