The man who barricaded himself in a car in front of California's Capitol said in a jailhouse interview Tuesday, April 19, 2016, that the event was carefully planned to attract attention. Edgar Napoles Rodriguez, 27, told The Sacramento Bee that his “life was at risk” after falling victim to an insurance fraud scam. He said people were ready to kill him, adding that he resorted to the standoff after law enforcement rebuffed his earlier pleas for help.
