Excerpts from Fox32Chicago.com:

A man accused of setting fire to a Chicago police vehicle while wearing a Joker mask during protests over police misconduct will be held in custody until trial. U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel Fuentes ordered Timothy O’Donnell held pending trial after prosecutors asserted O’Donnell, 31, had a criminal record that included bond forfeiture and failure to appear for hearings in five states, including Illinois.

O’Donnell is charged with arson for the alleged crime, which occurred during demonstrations over the death of George Floyd.

Photos attached to a criminal complaint filed last week in U.S. District Court allegedly show O’Donnell holding a lit object and putting it in the gas tank of Chicago Police Department SUV. Although he was wearing the Joker mask, O’Donnell was identified through a tattoo seen on the person’s neck after a family member directed authorities to him.
