Man gets prison for Vegas police SUV fire amid 2020 protests

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The first of three men who admitted setting fire to a Las Vegas police vehicle during a May 2020 racial injustice protest has been sentenced to two years in federal prison. Devarian Haynes apologized Wednesday before he was also sentenced to three years of post-release supervision, community service and restitution for his March guilty plea to a reduced charge of civil disorder. Co-defendants Tyree Walker and Ricardo Densmore are due for sentencing in coming weeks after also taking plea deals that avoided trial on conspiracy and arson charges. Each is expected to receive a sentence similar. The police vehicle fire came amid protests following George Floyd's killing by Minneapolis police.
