Retired Chicago Police Sergeant James R. Povolo, 72, Charged with Arson after Setting the tent encampment of self-styled Naperville political protester Scott Huber ablaze

The man charged in torching the tent encampment of self-styled Naperville political protester Scott Huber is a retired Chicago police sergeant who was once awarded the department's Medal of Valor.

James R. Povolo, 72, who has homes in Naperville and Florida, was charged with arson and criminal damage to property, both felonies, for allegedly setting the July 18 blaze that consumed Huber's tent home, near the southeast corner of Ogden Avenue and Naper Boulevard.

Authorities earlier this year would not confirm that Povolo had been a Chicago police officer, but documents recently made part of Povolo's file in DuPage County Circuit Court show he had been employed as an officer.

I like his style. He's the type of guy we can expect to take up positions on high rooftops sniping politicians when his health care is taken away.

So there they were so comfy if the front row of courtroom 4012. Just the 2 of them, the unpredictable and possibly psychotic one charged with felony arson, the other blindly sitting by his side. Aren't they cute, holding hands? He wearing what some may consider a suit, but the 80's were definitely calling. Cheesy black/white patterned jacket with an equally cheesy tie of the same colors. This guy could easily pass for a washed-up lounge singer in any dive.
The woman, wearing more 80's garb in a multi-colored blazer, black skirt and flats. They both looked like grandparents, although intelligent siblings keep people like these away from the grand kids.
Old Jimmy sat there, looking nervous and waiting for the judge, rubbing the brow and forehead, wringing his hands. The hands that can start fire and likely thinking, "What have I done?".
The judge comes in and the court call starts. One case. Second case, third, fourth, fifth. Then the sixth call. It's Jimmy Psychovolo's name that is called.
"Defendant! Rise from your pathetic ass and approach the bench along with that attorney of yours, Chuckie Dobra."
"Oh Judge, I filed a motion to see if you would modify the terms of bond to allow Psycho here to leave the state and go apple picking. Can he go apple picking Judge?"
"Oh sure - why not? Hmmm.... I don't seem to have a copy of this motion that I just considered for the better part of two seconds before granting it. Chubby, ah I mean Chuckie, do you have a copy of the motion?"
"Gee, Judge I don't have a copy either. I'm an ill prepared lawyer who does bring all the files relevant to the case to court with me. How about I send it to you by end of day?"
"Yeah sure, why not? Procedures are just suggestions, nothing to actually follow."
"So Chubbie, uh Chuckie. What's the staus of these felonies your client Mr. Psychovolo has gotten himself into? Are we ready to set date for trial?"
"Your Honor, my clients name is pronounced Povolo."
"That's what I said Chuckie, Psychovolo. And what's the matter with him anyway? Look at him."
"Excuse me your Honer? The matter with him?"
"Yes. Look at him. That stupid look on his face. He looks like he just wet himself."
"Jim did you wet yourself again?"
"No. I mean no I don't think so."
"Your honor you'll have to excuse my client. That is just how he looks."
"well then. What about getting this case rolling along. What are the hold ups?"
"We have requested discovery for the fire department and are starting to get that. I guess we should have full discovery soon."
"OK. Then we will set next hearing date."
"Thank you your Honor."
"Counselor. Before you go I want you to be sure your client brushes his teeth and gargles with mouthwash before coming before me again."
"Excuse me your Honor?"
"His breath. It smells horrible."
"Oh that? The teeth brushing and mouthwash don't help. It's just that he's full of shit."
