Sonora, CA – A Sonora man was arrested after witnesses relayed that he used a hand gesture depicting the firing of a gun during an argument.
Sonora Police Officers were called to the 200 block of Mono Way recently for a report of a disturbance. Once on scene, the victim told officers that her boyfriend 27-year-old Anthony Crudo of Sonora had been drinking and the two got into an argument.
