Man arrested after throwing homeless man's belongings in lake

In the video, a shirtless man is seen rifling through a homeless man's possessions and throwing them away as onlookers remonstrate with him.

- A jogger seen on video throwing a homeless man's belongings into the trash and into Oakland's Lake Merritt has been arrested - for a completely different incident.

Sintay is being held at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin on $100,000 bail.

Bystanders in the video can be heard pleading for the man to stop, but he insists that he's picking up trash.

"We're all very concerned about an individual who presumably wanted to take it upon himself to disturb or dismantle a person camping in our public space and that's just totally unacceptable", Oakland City Councilwoman Lynette McElhaney said.

A crowd-funding campaign for the homeless man has since raised more than $5,000 (£3,700).

Markson said he was confused to find his belongings trashed and didn't understand why the man would have thrown clothes in the water. "Only possibility is he may get a fine for littering", John Harris, who shot one of the videos, wrote on Facebook.

The man, originally known only as "Jogger Joe", was spotted near Merritt Lake in Oakland, California on Friday, June 8. A struggle followed. Later, a man with the Facebook user name of Matt Nelson posted that Sintay and another man had assaulted him and that he was "dragged by their vehicle". "If you want to help, help".

U.S. offers 'unique' guarantees to North Korea on eve of summit
Already, North Korea has criticized the US and South Korea's military drills, saying they're not helpful for peace talks. The likelihood of Kim Jong Un launching a first strike against the USA , thereby bringing on " fire and fury ", was low.

In an update, Harris said police arrived after Henry took off to "finish his workout". "He can pick it up".

Last month at the same lake, a woman called police on a black family having a cookout at the park - a video of which also went viral and sparked nationwide discussion.

According to The Daily Mail, the jogger returned to the scene later that day to fish some of the items out of the lake.

Nelson asked Sintay what he was doing and Sintay responded "trying to do the right (expletive) thing" by cleaning up the lake. At one point he denied throwing Markson's belongings in the lake the previous day.

Pointing to where Markson regularly sleeps, Sintay said "this guy has taken up permanent residence". But unlike numerous other recent cases of white Americans harassing people of color or mistreating disenfranchised people, Sintay is now facing law enforcement consequences. Sintay stepped forward, offering his hand as if expecting Nelson to shake it, then snatched his cell phone.

"Are you out of your mind?" Advocates for the homeless dubbed the man in the video, who had not yet been identified, "Jogger Joe" and began an online sleuthing effort to identify him. People had been bringing him food and clothes, he said, and stopping to offer him kind words. "I went back out that night to make sure no one messed with him again".

"I don't want to pollute the lake", Sintay says. "I guess we all have bad days and bad times".

A woman named Cari Geldreich says she offered to bring Markson's blankets to a laundromat for him, the paper reports.
