Rick Medina Arrested For Murder?


PALMDALE, Calif. (KABC) -- Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies have arrested Ricardo Medina, Jr., who is best known for his role as the red Power Ranger, in connection with fatally stabbing his roommate with a sword in their Green Valley home. Medina, 36, was booked for murder at Palmdale Sheriff's Station. He was being held in lieu of $1 million.

"He is a great friend and a great client. It's something I can't even conceive. I don't see that in him. He was a very helpful guy and great with his dog. It's such a shock," said Gar Lester, Medina's former agent who has known the actor for 12 years.

Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies said Medina called 911 at about 3:50 p.m. to report the stabbing in his home in the 38000 block of San Francisquito Canyon Road.

Sheriff's deputies said Medina got into an argument that turned into a physical fight with his roommate Joshua Sutter, 36. Sutter allegedly followed Medina and his girlfriend into their room by forcing the door open. Medina then stabbed Sutter in the abdomen with a sword kept next to the bedroom door. Sutter was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Medina played the Red Lion Wild Force Ranger in 2002, according to IMDB.



One of the stars of "Power Rangers Samurai" has been arrested for stabbing his roommate to death with a sword ... TMZ has learned.

Ricardo Medina Jr. was busted Saturday afternoon by L.A. County Sheriff's deputies in Palmdale, CA ... after a fight broke out between himself and the roommate ... Joshua Sutter.

According to law enforcement ... Medina retreated to his bedroom with his girlfriend -- but Sutter forced his way into the bedroom ... and that's when Medina 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 he was pronounced dead.

Medina got his break in Hollywood as the Red Ranger on "Power Rangers Wild Force" back in 2002. He went on to play Dekker on "Power Rangers Samurai."

He's still in jail, and bail has been set at one million dollars.


Wow... not quite sure what to think of this. My thoughts and prayers go out to all involved.
