Ricardo Medina (Wild Force's Cole and Samurai's Deker) arrested

Ricardo Medina a.k.a. Rick Medina, age 37, who played Cole/Red Ranger in Power Rangers Wild Force (2002) and Deker in Power Rangers Samurai/Super Samurai (2011-2012). Yesterday 1/31/15, he was arrested on suspicion on murder of his roommate Joshua Sutter, 36 years of age, with a sword in Palmdale, California. A fight broke out. According to law enforcement, Medina went to his bedroom with his girlfriend but Sutter forced his way into the bedroom and that's when he allegedly stabbed him once in the abdomen with the sword.  Medina called 911 and waited for for cops to arrive. He was arrested and booked for murder. Sutter was transported to a hospital where Sutter was pronounced dead. This is indeed unsettling news as I met Rick Medina at Power Morphicon 2012 and met his son and mother of the son. Skylar Delon infamously was in one episode of Power Rangers, murdered two people and got the death sentence and has been mistaken for a Power Ranger.

Arsya Utomo, yes he does. I went to PMC3 and his son and his son's mother was there. He was around 4 or 5 at the time, that was 2 and a half years ago.
