EV Charger off of exit sign circuit

A question came up about a Ev charger.  One of the owners in a multistory residential, in Los Angeles, wants to put a standard 110v outlet, to plug a car charger into.  This individual wants to put the outlet on the same circuit, and come off of the electrical from an illuminated exit sign.  I am assuming this is not allowed.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
