Criminal charges have been filed against a petroleum company blamed for causing oily ooze to coat a Los Angeles street and forcing the evacuation of 130 downtown residents three months ago. Irvine-based St. James Oil Corp. was named in a nine-count criminal complaint filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court for alleged violations stemming from the Feb. 20 incident in the 1200 block of South Olive Street. St. James officials could not be reached for comment.
