latimes.com – Kiera Feldman, Brittny Mejia – A 22-year-old Sylmar man arrested on suspicion of making false claims about a possible active shooter at the Los Angeles County Fair did so because he was hoping to avoid going to the fair with his parents, Pomona police said. “It was with the intent that it would spark some chaos and commotion,” Pomona Police Chief Michael Olivieri said at a news conference Saturday. “It would be captured in the news media. And then he could use it as an excuse to his parents not to go to the fair. Kind of a crazy thing, but that’s what we have learned.”
