SF DA issues arrest warrant for gallery owner accused of harboring woman

San Francisco police arrested Collier Quinn, a gallery owner on Wednesday, who was caught on video spraying a homeless woman with a garden hose after she said she refused to leave the sidewalk he was cleaning.

Quinn will be charged Jan. 9 with “intentionally and unlawfully spraying water on a woman experiencing homelessness,” District Attorney Jenkins said in a statement released after reviewing evidence from the San Francisco Police Department.

“Alleged battery of a non-resident member of our community is completely unacceptable,” Jenkins continued. “Mr. Quinn will face the appropriate consequences for his actions.

Two days after the video went viral, the vandalism that took place after Foster Quinn’s gallery door was broken down and boarded up was also “unacceptable and must stop,” he added.

Quinn was arrested at or near his gallery around 3:30 p.m. If convicted, Quinn faces up to six months in county jail and a $2,000 fine.
