About that Arrest: Here’s What You Need to Know

You’re wondering why that driver was pulled over and handcuffed by Sheriff’s deputies on Santa Monica Boulevard while you were driving home from work the other day? And what led to that man in the apartment down the street being perp-walked out the front door of his apartment building? To find an answer, scroll through the arrest log posted below, which is provided by LocalCrimeNews.com. Local Crimes News is a syndicated service that offers records of local arrests, updated around 2 p.m. each day (except for holidays and weekends, when they are updated the following Monday or Tuesday.) The daily arrest log can be found on WEHOville.com’s Crime and Public Safety page.

Given that West Hollywood spans, but doesn’t entirely cover, several ZIP zones (primarily 90046, 90048, and 90069) some of the arrests may have involved people outside our city limits. And remember, just because someone was arrested doesn’t mean he or she is guilty. To track court cases, go to the Los Angeles County Superior Court case document site. If you find a record of your arrest and want it removed, you can request that on the LocalCrimeNews.com site.

Perhaps we need two separate publications:

WEHOVILLE, that discuses community news and affairs

WEHO CRIME BLOTTER, that presents the sordid side of life generally relegated to end of column issues and preferably written in invisible ink.

C’mon Hank, you are an ethical journalist and this is….not. This is public shaming & has no place on your site.

Come on people. This is nothing new. The community deserves to know who committing crimes in our own backyards. If you do not want your name showing up in the local news outlets, try not breaking the laws. Same thing my parents told me not that long ago while I was growing up in a small midwestern town. Maybe a little town square embarrassment will make a few people think twice before doing something stupid.

What is the purpose of posting this information, other than click-bait? Public shaming? It doesn’t make the city any safer. It has the potential of ruining innocent people’s lives. Please reconsider this page.

I agree. This also has the potential of destroying a person’s perhaps previously excellent reputation. They haven’t had their day in court. If found guilty, then maybe those names could be shared with readers. This current method should be abandoned.

I know how you felt. Many years ago in New York my husband and I were pulled over for a traffic violation. Two persons in unmarked car pulled up next to us and showed a sign that said police pull over. I was sure we were being robbed. As it turns out they were the police, but I will never forget that fear. I’m so sorry Henry that this happened to you.
