You want to stay out of jail. I think?
A 17-year-old Orange County gang member asked to go to jail early Thursday. But he hadn’t committed a crime, so nobody would arrest him, according to Atwater police.
The oddness started just before 2 a.m. when the teen entered the Atwater Police Department lobby claiming he was on probation and that he’d cut off his electronic ankle monitor. “They tried to locate any information that he was (wanted) anywhere, but there was no record,” Joseph said. “When he was told he was free to leave, he appeared disappointed.”
