Man Accused Of Driving Through Woodfield Mall Charged In Unrelated Case

The Palatine man accused of driving a vehicle through Woodfield Mall in September is in more legal trouble. Javier Garcia pleaded not guilty yesterday after being indicted on charges of arson and criminal damage to property in an unrelated case. The charges stem from a September 8th incident in which Garcia is accused of setting a pickup truck on fire in Palatine. The 23-year-old is charged with terrorism after authorities say he rammed his SUV through an entrance door at the Schaumburg mall less than two weeks after the arson incident.
