Marines get probation for shooting windows, cars

Two Camp Pendleton Marines accused of shooting at eight storefronts and 17 vehicles within Laguna Beach last year were sentenced to three years probation and 80 hours of community service Tuesday, according to the Orange County Superior Court website.

Joseph Ikaika Nahale of Fremont and Jesse Jordan Ivie of Gresham, Ore., both 20, pleaded guilty to two counts of misdemeanor vandalism resulting in less than $400 in damage, the court’s website said. Multiple misdemeanor and federal vandalism counts were dismissed.


Ivie and Nahale’s drivers’ licenses were suspended for one year and both are required to remove graffiti for eight hours, according to the court.

Officers arrested Ivie and Nahale in October after receiving a tip from a woman sleeping in her car who reported her windows had been shot at, according to an earlier Coastline Pilot story.


Police stopped a car that matched the woman’s description and detained Ivie and Nahale, who were both on active duty at the time.

Authorities learned the suspects purchased BB guns at a WalMart earlier that day, police said.

Newport Beach also reported one incident, while San Clemente had three and Dana Point two, according to reports.
