A man is accused of making threats and firing a gun into the ceiling of an Altadena bar last Saturday night, according to reports.
Deputies arrested Freddy Flores, 51, on suspicion of making criminal threats, negligent discharge of a firearm and drunken driving following the shooting, which took place just before midnight Saturday at the Altadena Ale & Wine House, 2329 Fair Oaks Avenue, according to Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials and booking records.
Flores is known to frequent the local bars in Altadena, particularly Altadena Ale House.
Flores made threats and pulled out a revolver, firing three shots into the ceiling. He then left the bar and drove off.
Sources tell Beacon Media that Mr. Flores was with three other people in an Altadena restaurant, AltaEats, on North Allen, earlier in the evening and was belligerent with the manager and handed her a business card – which he claimed stated Flores was “ the chief of police “ and threatened to close the restaurant down or give it a bad review. The party was eventually asked to leave and then they went to Altadena Ale House.
LASD deputies responded to reports of the shooting at the Ale House on Fair Oaks and found Flores driving nearby and pulled him over, and arrested him for allegedly driving under the influence.
Deputies recovered a revolver from Flores with three fired shell casings still in the cylinder, he said.
According to county booking records, Flores was being held in lieu of $50,000 bail pending a scheduled arraignment Tuesday in Pasadena Superior Court. Flores was due in court March 3 for arraignment.
