Court documents said Lee had a conversation with his boss, in which he allegedly said “…the only way to deal with the homeless is through violence.”

Documents also said Lee allegedly set fire to a homeless camp “about a month ago.”

Investigators said they’re now searching through Lee’s cell phone records while he is being held without bond facing a number of charges.
