A 22-year-old man was killed in Yorba Linda after breaking into a family's home. The man had been screaming about zombies hours earlier but was shot dead when he broke into a family's suburban home.
After the young man broke through a glass door, the homeowner shot the man. The perpetrator's family members said he had been hallucinating at a party and made several inappropriate comments about zombies.
During the Halloween season, crime and arrests tend to go up. From drug charges to vandalism to theft to DUI, this holiday is generally a time when crime statistics go up. Due to the prevalent carousing and partying that goes on, juvenile crimes in particular are high during this month.
Some police warn, "Kids need to keep in mind that what might seem like a fun prank to them, may actually be a crime." From pumpkin smashing and candy stealing to more serious crimes like breaking and entering, Halloween seems to be a magnet for it all.
If you are arrested around the Halloween holiday and charged with a crime, it is imperative that you secure criminal defense immediately. As law officers tend to be particularly aggressive during national holidays, you need to make sure you are represented well and that your rights remain protected.
