On Monday morning, Los Angeles mayoral candidate Joe Buscaino was giving a campaign speech in Los Angeles. Buscaino is a former LAPD officer who has been serving in the city council since 2012, and is still a reserve officer.
The speech was interrupted by a woman acting irrationally and brandishing a fixed blade knife. Private security working for Buscaino interrupted the event when they saw the woman hold a knife near the candidate. LAPD officers rushed in and struggled with her, disarmed her, and then arrested her.
Authorities say the unidentified woman was arrested and will be charged with aggravated assault.
According to reports on social media, this isn’t first incident with this woman. It appears she may have assaulted a woman on the beach just a few days ago, captured on video.
Homeless problem much?
