Johannes Mehserle arrested
Meserle arrested today, though it's unclear on what charges.
OAKLAND — Johannes Mehserle, the BART police officer who shot and killed an unarmed man New Year's Day, has been arrested, a high-ranking Oakland city official confirmed late Tuesday.
It was not clear what charges Mehserle could face. David Chai, the chief of staff for Mayor Ron Dellums, who confirmed the arrest, said he knew no further details.
Mehserle's killing of Oscar Grant III has led to massive public outcry, particularly since video of the shooting surfaced.
