Donta Betts, arrested

Donta Betts participated in the looting of the CVS pharmacy at the intersection of Pennsylvania and North avenues on April 27. He was captured on camera spraying lighter fluid onto a lighted roll of toilet paper atop propane cylinders in the street. As part of a plea agreement last month, Betts pleaded guilty in federal court to making a destructive device during the rioting, as well as an unrelated charge of discharging a weapon in furtherance of a drug-trafficking crime. Under the plea agreement, Betts will be sentenced to between 14 and 16 years in prison.
