HAWTHORNE, CA—It’s nearly midnight, and what’s a man to do but get arrested?
Raymoan (sic) John Biddle, 55; Darrell West, 31; and Shiab Cunningham, 40, were picked up by Hawthorne Police Department officers on Friday, October 17 at approximately 10:45 p.m. All three men were arrested along the 4000 block of 130th Street in Hawthorne.
