Five arrested during Altadena disturbance

Two women and three men were arrested and one was shot with a taser during a disturbance at the intersection of East Sacramento St. and Raymond Lane Monday night.

According to Altadena Sheriff Lt. Roosevelt Johnson, deputies were called to the intersection at 11:14 PM last night on a gang disturbance and loud music call.  According to Johnson, the deputies called for backup after being surrounded by about 50-60 people who were "partying in the street." Scanner reports said that Pasadena police and deputies from the Temple City sheriff's station came in as reinforcements.

A male, Diondri Mills, 19, was shot with a taser in the confrontation and taken to the hospital to remove the taser darts, which Johnson said was standard procedure.  In addition to Mills, two other men, DeShawn Hayes, 18, and Anthony Jackson, 27, were also arrested, as were two women, Briana Triplett, 20, and Dominiqe Zavala, 22.  All were charged with inciting a riot, Johnson said.
