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
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.
