Police received a call about a man sleeping in an orchard on the 6700 block of S. Jack Tone Road. Deputy Boyd was dispatched and, sure enough, found 28-year old Joey Yang.

According to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, Yang was asked why he was sleeping in the orchard, and he replied: “it was cool.”

Typically, officers would have given Yang a warning, but they discovered he is a transient who had a felony warrant out for elder abuse.

Yang is now keeping cool in the San Joaquin County Jail.
