For weeks, an air horn has been blasted around 4 a.m. The villain responsible became known as the air horn guy. The San Diego Union Tribune reports police may have captured the man responsible.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. And I am so sorry for what's about to happen.

(SOUNDBITE OF AIR HORN)

GREENE: Yeah. Residents of one neighborhood in Southern California have been waking up to that for weeks at around 4 a.m. The villain responsible became known as the air horn guy. And The San Diego Union-Tribune reports police may have captured him. They arrested John Nuggent, who they think was taking revenge on someone. Police put Nuggent in jail, impounded his car and his horn. It's MORNING EDITION.
