In Santa Ana, James Anthony Lawlor, 35, was arrested with the help of this hand-drawn picture from a homeless person of the man who kicked him in the face and burned down his tent. It will make for an interesting piece of admissible evidence, though the police have ample evidence against Lawlor including the image below.
Lawlor reportedly demanded that a homeless couple leave the vacant lot around 8:30 am. He told them that he was going for his Glock handgun and when the man inside stuck his face out, Lawlor reportedly kicked him in the face twice. Fifteen minutes later, Lawlor reportedly returned in his black pickup truck, poured gasoline on the tent, and set it on fire.
Santa Ana Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna told CBS2 News taht Lawlor was “fed up” with homeless people.
