Man must pay $1M restitution for cutting hose during Baltimore riots

- (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to puncturing a fire hose being used during the riots in Baltimore last year has been ordered to pay $1 million in restitution.

Twenty-two-year-old Gregory Lee Butler Jr., also known as Greg Baly, was ordered to serve three years of probation and to perform 250 hours of community service.

U.S. District Judge J. Frederick Motz also sentenced Butler to time served on Thursday.

Prosecutors say Butler twice punctured a fire hose as firefighters were battling an arson blaze at a CVS drug store on April 27, 2015.
