California man arrested for alleged assault sticks tongue out in mugshot

He was sticking it to authorities.

A California man posed for a mugshot by sticking his tongue out after allegedly assaulting his former landlord and leading authorities on a pursuit, news station KTLA reported.

Paul Stephen Otto, 27, is accused of illegally entering his ex-landlord’s home Friday and putting the man in a chokehold, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

He then fled the scene in a silver Volvo sedan and was tracked down by officers near Norco Police Station, the report said.

The alleged culprit led authorities on a short chase before he crashed into another vehicle, totaling his car, officials said.

Otto was brought to a nearby hospital, where he was evaluated before he was released to police, KTLA reported.

He was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center on charges of attempted murder and cruelty to a dependent adult.

He’s being held on $300,000 bail and is set to appear in court Dec. 10.
