LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A man wearing a uniform and impersonating the National Guard was arrested by Los Angeles police, authorities said Tuesday.

Gregory Wong of Gardena, 31, was taken into custody by police at about
1:30 a.m. near the corner of First and Main, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Drake Madison said.

Police tell CBSLA a real Guard member noticed the man around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

He noticed the suspect was wearing a uniform that didn’t look quite right and told police that man was taken into custody.

Wong was reportedly armed with an M-4 rifle and a pistol. He later told police he was in the area on his way to provide security for a friend’s establishment, according to Madison.

He was taken into custody and charged with transportation of an assault weapon, according to Madison.

“While investigators are still looking into the incident, at this time it does not appear that Mr. Wong intended to harm anyone,” Madison said.

  1. This is not good . Very happy he was apprehended and let us see if there is a trail somewhere or if he was a lone [ fool or looking to start trouble by shooting peaceful protesters ] . Looters during a riot i have no problem if they wish to resist arrest by real law enforcement or you are the owner of a store protecting your livelihood then fine put the bad ones down . We do not need people looking for trouble . We need peaceful protests only .

      The man was an airsofter who used to be an IT technician in the signals battalion of the 82nd Infantry.

      I highly suspect he just wanted to hang out with NatGuards.

  2. Larry Bean says:

    MSM said that Wong was a “white supremacist”.
