Mug Shot Of The Day Goes To The Guy Terrorizing His Neighborhood With An Air Horn

This is one of those mug shots that lives up to the hype. If you were to ask me what type of Looney Toons character would go around a neighborhood terrorizing neighbors with an air horn, this is EXACTLY what I’d expect him to look like. via NBC:

An air horn that sounds like a train has been terrorizing the residents of El Segundo for weeks, but police in the Southern California city have just arrested a man in connection with the noise — with air horn equipment inside his car, they say.
The bust came early Sunday at 4 a.m. — around the time many of the alarmingly loud incidents would occur.

“The sound is like a train coming through the neighborhood,” said El Segundo Police Lt. Ray Garcia.

The noise has been plaguing residents on the west side of the city for weeks. Police have received numerous reports of an extremely loud air horn going off before residents spot a getaway car, a blue four-door sedan driven by a man.

Sunday morning, officers once again heard the noise, then made a traffic stop at Grand Avenue and Main Street directly after. In a blue 2006 Chevrolet Aveo, they spotted air horn equipment inside the car, police said.

I just want to know how he turned an air horn into something that sounds like train. How is that even possible with a quick trip to Wal-Mart? This man is an air horn engineer wizard.
