Musk resumes work in California plant under threat of arrest

May 12, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Tesla inventor and CEO Elon Musk said Monday that production on the lines of a California plant is resuming in violation of a local government ban.

In his Twitter, Musk wrote that he plans to launch the conveyor of his main enterprise and plans to be at the plant himself. He also said that if the authorities want to arrest someone, then it must be he. State law permits fines of up to $ 1,000 per day or up to 90 days in prison for work in violation of sanitary regulations.

The plant in Fremont, a city with a population of more than 230 thousand people south of San Francisco, has been closed since March 23. At the same time, Elon Musk announced on May 9 that he intends to resume production at a California enterprise, while observing all the necessary safety rules to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Tesla even filed a lawsuit to challenge the injunction of Alamida County authorities, who were categorically against resuming work.
