Man Arrested in San Bruno For Allegedly Driving Over Graves

SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 29-year-old Berkeley man was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after he drove over dozens of gravesites at a San Bruno cemetery.

The East Bay Times reports that Pierce Jagger was found on the grounds of Golden Gate National Cemetery inside his severely damaged vehicle Sunday night.

Police say Jagger drove through the gates to the closed cemetery and over dozens of gravesites on a grassy hill. He also attempted to drive up some granite steps, but his vehicle became disabled, the newspaper reported.

Jagger was also arrested for driving with a suspended license and could face felony vandalism charges.

Constructed in 1937, Golden Gate National Cemetery is the final resting place for scores of veterans and their family members.
