Man’s car allegedly loaded with weapons


MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- When police pulled a man over for driving

without his lights on, they allegedly found his car loaded with

knives and other weapons.

Charles Manning Fish III, a 53-year-old Arleta man, was stopped by

police early Sunday morning near the corner of Glenoaks Boulevard and

Buena Vista Street. When officers approached the car, they saw a

large police-style baton on the floor and a knife clipped to Fish’s

front pocket, police said.
