A Vacaville pastor who was recently accused of firebombing the home of an ex-girlfriend was back behind bars Sunday after being arrested on suspicion of fraud.
Solano County authorities said they arrested 39-year-old Mark Lewis of the Fellowship Baptist Church for falsifying documents.
Two and a half weeks ago, Lewis and three homeless people staying at the church were charged with tossing a Molotov cocktail at the home of his former girlfriend.
Lewis was arrested in the attack and later posted $500,000 bail.
Vacaville police investigators are now accusing him of falsifying deeds with another church's tax and incorporation numbers as collateral.
"[He was] using information from a church in Riverside California, and a tax ID number from a larger, conglomerate international group out of Missouri, none of which are associated with [his church]," said Vacaville Police Lt. John Carli.
In an interview with KCRA-TV earlier this month, Lewis claimed he had nothing to do with the firebomb attack.
"They caught the people who did that," the pastor said. "They were just trying to point the finger at me. That's normal. That's normal. It'll come out and be cleared up."
Lewis was arrested on suspicion of arson of an inhabited dwelling, conspiracy and stalking after the attack.
Lewis' ex-girlfriend, Sarah Nottingham, told KCRA that she and Lewis dated for a year.
"He told me he wasn't ready for it to be over, basically threatened me that he had nothing to lose and that he would stop at nothing," Nottingham said.
Lewis has been named as a suspect in four other cases of harassment and vandalism against Nottingham, including a fire in bushes in front of her home, according to police. She had taken out a restraining order against him.
Police have also arrested the pastor's uncle.
Officers said he's a convicted felon who had a handgun with the serial number removed.
Some tragedies at hospitals might be unavoidable, but a mother and father who lost their 21 month old daughter at Children's Hospital Oakland say it's what happened after their daughter's death that has continued to torment them.
