Cesar Aguirre of Elk Grove Sued by Oakland for Vandalism During General Strike

Oakland officials have filed a complaint for damages against Cesar Aguirre, a 24-year-old Elk Grove resident who was arrested on the night of the November 2 General Strike in Oakland after officers say they saw him destroying property near Frank Ogawa Plaza.

Oakland officials have warned occupiers several times that they may try to seek compensation for the few occasions on which there have been instances of property destruction or vandalism. This appears to be the first time the city has followed through on those warnings.
