Man arrested for terrorizing neighborhood with air horn

John W. Nuggent

EL SEGUNDO, CA (WCMH) — Police say the man was blowing the extremely loud horn early in the morning, disturbing several neighbors.

According to El Segundo police, at about 4am, November 13, officers in the west side of a town heard an extremely loud horn being actuated that sounded similar to a train horn.

Police said there were several reports, spanning several weeks, of the same horn in the neighborhood coming from the same 4-door compact vehicle driven.

After hearing the horn, officers pulled over John W. Nuggent in a 2006 Chevrolet Aveo, and after inspecting the vehicle, they found air-horn equipment inside his car.

Multiple neighbors responded to the scene and initiated a citizen’s arrest of Nuggent.

Nuggent was taken into custody and is being charged with suspicion of disturbing the peace. His car was also impounded, horn and all. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
