Activist Vaun Mayes indicted after Grand Jury says Mayes played role in fireboming plot

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Grand Jury indicted Vaun Mayes on Tuesday afternoon saying he played a role in an attempt to firebomb a police station during the unrest in Sherman Park two years ago. 

Prosecutors said Mayes used teens he mentored to plot the firebombing.

Last week, a federal judge upheld an order to release Mayes from custody pending trial.

Prosecutors lost their appeal of that ruling on Friday.
