Timothy O’Donnell, 31, was arrested Tuesday on a federal arson charge, according to Fox News and the Department of Justice.
A man in a clown mask allegedly lit a Chicago police vehicle on fire in broad daylight.
Investigators were able to catch him down, in part due to the fact tha he has the word “PRETTY” tattooed across his neck. If convicted, he faces five to 20 years in prison.
“Anyone involved in destructive behavior — such as setting fire to a police car — should know that federal law enforcement will use all tools available to us to hold them accountable,” U.S. Attorney John Lausch said.
From Fox News:
Photos of the scene show a man in a mask, similar to ones used in the 2019 “Joker” movie, a “Batman” spinoff that depicts citywide rioting leading up to its final scene.
In the images, the masked man can be seen handling a police vehicle’s gas tank and later sitting and posing near the flaming SUV. In one of the photos, the “PRETTY” tattoo is visible.
The FBI special agent handling the investigation said he also reviewed video that showed the entire May 30 incident…
Authorities executed a search warrant at O’Donnell’s home Tuesday and found an identical “Joker” mask in the bedroom, according to a criminal complaint. After his arrest, he allegedly waived his right to remain silent and admitted he was the one wearing the mask in the photos.
