On January 18th, Collier Gwin, the owner of a San Francisco art gallery seen on camera spraying a homeless lady with a hose, was detained for the heinous crime.
In connection with the disgusting event that occurred outside his Foster Gwin Gallery on January 9, Gwin was taken into police custody according to an arrest warrant and charged with criminal violence.
The district attorney announced his arrest and referred to his behaviour as “absolutely reprehensible.”
However, this comes after the police claimed that despite widespread calls for Gwin to be punished, neither party elected to file criminal charges.
The police chose to arrest Gwin after weighing all the available evidence, according to the city’s district attorney, Brooke Jenkins.
“The alleged battery of an unhoused member of our community is completely unacceptable. Mr. Gwin will face appropriate consequences for his actions.
“Likewise, the vandalism at Foster Gwin gallery is also completely unacceptable and must stop — two wrongs do not make a right.”
