Man Caught Allegedly Gouging Lawn in Cerritos

Timothy Jeffers, 25, of Cerritos, was arrested Saturday night.

A 25-year-old man suspected of using his Toyota pickup to gouge deep ruts in the lawn of Brookhaven Park was taken into custody and could face a year in jail, authorities said.

Timothy Jeffers, of Cerritos, was arrested about 8:15 p.m. Saturday at the park, 13100 Brookhaven St., according to Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Jeff Deedrick.

According to the lieutenant, the suspect was doing figure eights on the lawn and was caught in the act by a patrol deputy.

"It was a mindless, foolish act," the lieutenant told Patch.

The damage was estimated at $6,000 and the suspect will most likely be charged if he is convicted, Deedrick told Patch.

Stupid kid stunts. Nothing terribly new about this. Re-seed and move on. Although, I would make him do the repair work instead of doing time.

Just curious, does 25 actually still count as a kid? :)

How will he charged if he is convicted? That does not make any sense.

PB meaning charged for the costs to fix the damages.

He's an adult chronologically and should do time, then pay to have a professional fix the damage. Maybe he'll finally grow up mentally.

Building bars will only give the impression to local surrounding cities that Cerritos is much like a city that once was is no longer, don't let an idiot like this dictate an impression that Cerritos has fallen to a bad community local law enforcement and city council has always kept the city a class act community and place to enjoyably live
