Wrong-way vehicle results in citations
Four passengers of a vehicle were issued citations at 4:03 p.m. May 30 at Forest Avenue and Glenneyre Street, Kravetz said.
An officer saw a Chevy Cobalt traveling the wrong way in the alley between Glenneyre and Second streets. When the officer pulled in behind the car and turned on her lights, a beer can flew out the passenger side window of the vehicle, Kravetz alleged.
There were five people in the car, including a 15-year-old girl from Stanton who gave officers an incorrect name, date of birth and address.
When officers searched the car, they and found beer inside. The 15-year-old was cited for allegedly providing false information, littering and possession of an open alcohol container. She was brought to the station and released to a parent.
Three other passengers, two women from Anaheim and a man from Garden Grove, all 21, were issued citations for alleged possession of an open alcohol container. The driver was released without a citation.
