CCPD Sends Crisis Team to Do Its Dirty Work
September 9, 2021
Culver City police avoided a messy situation in Trader Joe's bathroom this week.
Alerted about a man who had locked himself in the market's restroom, flooded it and refused to leave, Culver City police dispatched its Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) to clean up the mess.
After an hour of negotiation, the CNT "de-escalated the situation and was able to convince the subject to exit the restroom" without causing more damage to the facility, said Culver City Police Department in a statement.
The stinky situation occurred around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday at Trader Joe's, located at 6150 Slauson Ave., police said.
The subject was taken into custody and transported to a local area hospital for further evaluation, CCPD said.
