Man arrested after brandishing shotgun

CLEARLAKE – A man who allegedly brandished a shotgun Thursday morning was arrested after a search by police.


Michael Wayne Anduja, 23, of Lower Lake was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of exhibiting a firearm and felony possession of a dangerous weapon. He was booked into the Lake County Jail with bail set at $10,000, according to jail records.


Clearlake Police Sgt. Brenda Crandall said a call came in to police at about 11:47 a.m. reporting a man had brandished a short-barreled shotgun at several people at 18th and Phillips avenues.


The suspect, Anduja, then fled the area prior to the officers' arrival, Crandall said.


“Highlands Academy and Yuba College were contacted for lockdown,” said Crandall.


Several roads in the area also were reportedly shut down while the police looked for Anduja.


Police searched the area and arrested Anduja shortly before 1:30 p.m., according to the police report.


Crandall said no one was injured in the incident, and the weapon Anduja allegedly brandished was recovered.
