LOS ANGELES – City Attorney Mike Feuer today announced that his office has filed multiple criminal charges against Alexander Dunn, an aspiring rap artist, claiming he caused a serious disruption to the morning rush hour commute by scaling a freeway sign as part of a stunt.
"This outrageous conduct required the intervention of precious emergency services to assure it ended safely, stopped traffic for nearly two hours and interfered with the lives and work of thousands of commuters. We will hold the defendant accountable for his reckless, selfish actions," said Feuer.
Dunn, 30, was charged with five criminal counts including: resisting an officer; causing a public nuisance; two counts of trespassing; and failing to abide by peace officer’s instructions. Dunn faces a maximum of three years in jail and a fine of $3,000 for all charges. Dunn also faces thousands of dollars in restitution for emergency response costs.
