HAWTHORNE, CA—Most people wake up in jail wondering who will petition for their release; being a campaign manager could help expedite that painful, lonely and otherwise arduous process.
Jason Deon Williams, 33, was picked up by Hawthorne police on Tuesday, April 8 at approximately 11:30 p.m. near the corner of Fonthill and 126th Street. The Lawndale resident told police he is a campaign manager—but apparently did not disclose which campaign he may be managing nor if it is a political campaign.
There are a number of campaigns set to collect votes throughout the year. Most notable is the Assembly 62nd District and later in the year is the mayoral race in Inglewood—a charter city adjacent to Hawthorne and which shares police forces when events occur.
Although it was unknown why Williams was stopped, it did turn out that he had number of outstanding warrants: vandalism, driving while his license was suspended, and no fewer than two failures to appear. The four warrants were served by three agencies: Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD), Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The cumulative ball was set at $61,726.
