An Oakland murder suspect was arrested when police stopped him for smoking a cigarette outside of a sports bar in unincorporated Alameda County, sheriff’s officials said.
Alameda County Sheriff’s deputies drove by to check on the bar shortly before 11 p.m. on Friday, sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson said. They saw three men smoking outside the entrance to the bar and stopped to issue citations, as according to county law smoking must be 20 feet from any doorway. The deputies checked the three men’s identities and realized that one of the men was wanted for murder in Oakland. Deputies took Franklin Bean, 30, into custody.
Bean is suspected of fatally shooting 25-year-old Jeremy Johnson on the afternoon of Dec. 17 in the 2600 block of Fruitvale Avenue. Bean remains in police custody and has been charged with murder by the Alameda County District Attorney’s office.
