MILWAUKEE -- Another arrest has been made in connection with last weekend's violence in Sherman Park.
Dale Folley, 19, of Milwaukee is accused of starting a vehicle fire in the parking lot of a Pick 'n Save near 18th Street and National Avenue.
Police believe Folley was with at least 20 other young adults at the time.

According to a criminal complaint, Folley tried to run from an officer but was caught. When the officer asked him why he set the vehicle on fire he said, “We wanted to do the same thing here that we did on Sherman Boulevard.” 

In an interview, Folley said he used his umbrella to knock down a glass window, lit a napkin on fire and threw it into the van. 

If convicted, Folley could serve 3.5 years in prison.
