Terry Rawls, 44, has been arrested in the mob beating of Matthew Owens in Mobile, Ala.

Owens was beaten viciously and is in critical care. After the assault, one of the attackers reportedly said, “Now that’s justice for Trayvon.”

After being contacted by police, Rawls turned himself in.

This is not Rawls’ first run-in with the law. In 2000, he pleaded guilty to criminal assault. In 2004, he was arrested on two third-degree burglary charges.

Police believe that a large number of the 20 or so blacks involved in the attack on Owens only watched the assault take place. So far, no other warrants have been issued, but police say two or three more arrests may take place.

According to police, Rawls and Owens have a history of confrontation.
