Lakewood Police were in Tent City to investigate an  incident about the theft of scrap metal and spoke with a woman who lives there.

After police left, Brigham asked the woman to leave Tent City.

When she refused, the woman says Brigham began to take down her tent using a pair of scissors.



When police returned, they found Brigham still in possession of the scissors and placed him under arrest.
