Of interest … arsonist in Chicago

Excerpts from

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.

About The Bensenville Fire Protection District

Welcome to the Bensenville Fire Protection District #2 website. We hope you will find our website useful and informative. Under a unique Intergovernmental Agreement, the Bensenville Fire Protection District #2 (Bensenville FPD) and the Addison Fire Protection District #1 (Addison FPD) have agreed to share the current Addison FPD fire chief as the Bensenville FPD undergoes various restructuring measures to conserve taxpayer dollars. This agreement will save the Bensenville FPD significant money while also providing the Addison FPD with revenues that are paid for these shared services. The Bensenville FPD has seen its taxpayer base shrink as properties once served have been annexed by the City of Chicago for the expansion of O’Hare Airport. This financial challenge, along with others, have prompted these cost savings measures as the Bensenville FPD balances providing exceptional fire, EMS, and rescue services within a tightened financial environment. We continue to strive to make Bensenville a better and safer place in which to live, work, and visit. On behalf of our trustees, officers, and firefighters, thank you for the privilege of serving you. If I can be of any service, please contact me at 630-350-3441 or by email at
