Unstable Homeless Man Arrested at Ocean Park Restrooms

From Santa Monica Close Up:

"On November 8, 2023, officers from the Santa Monica Police Department’s Homeless Liaison Program (HLP) took a homeless man into custody at Santa Monica Beach under a 5150 hold, due to concerns about his mental health.

The individual was subjected to an involuntary psychiatric hold, also known as a 5150, after being assessed as a potential threat to himself or others or being found gravely disabled. During this intervention, a clinician from the Department of Mental Health was present to oversee the process."
