MOUNT MADONNA - A man was arrested Monday night after he shot a deer on private property near Mount Madonna County Park, the Sheriff's Office reported.

About 9 p.m., a witness saw a car drive into a meadow near a herd of deer on the 300 block of Mount Madonna Road, deputy April Skalland said. A witness said the driver of the car turned the car's lights on the deer. Someone fired a shot at the deer and they scattered, Skalland said.

About 10:45 p.m., sheriff's deputies pulled over a Chevy Malibu near the corner of Mount Madonna Road and Hazel Dell Road and found a dead deer in the trunk, Skalland said. Deputies also found a .22 caliber rifle, Skalland said.

Jose Flores-Rodriguez was arrested on suspicion of hunting without a license, spotlighting game and trespassing on private property for the purpose of hunting, Skalland said. Another man in the car was released, deputies said.
