Driver accused of running over 2 peacocks in Chatsworth

by City News Service

CHATSWORTH – A 61-year-old man suspected of killing two wild peacocks in Chatsworth’s Lake Manor was out of jail on bond this morning.

Floyd Belton was taken into custody at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday at the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lost Hills station in Malibu and was released about 8:20 p.m. His bail had been set at $80,000, according to LASD jail records.

Belton was sought by authorities after witnesses said he used his pickup truck to run over two birds on a street in the community located near Chatsworth Reservoir last month.

“He actually aimed right for them as opposed to stopping,” resident Melanie Kline told ABC7. “How could somebody be that evil?”

A court date for Belton was not immediately scheduled.
