Naked Man Allegedly Attempted to Burn Down House, Sets Himself on Fire Instead
New York State police arrested a man from the Bronx after he allegedly attempted to light an occupied house on fire Friday.
But if you think that's dumb, just wait!
The 23-year-old suspect not only accidentally lit himself on fire in the process, but was also completely naked when it happened, according to the New York State Police. Why this guy was outdoors naked during the winter in New York state is anyone's guess.
The incident happened in the Town of Shawangunk.
A press release from the NY state police says the nude suspect used an accelerant and lit an the house on fire.
The naked man was arrested on felony charges of arson and reckless endangerment. He is currently in the Ulster County Jail where he'll thankfully spend his Christmas far away from any Yule logs, or anything flammable for that matter.
There is no word as of yet as to why he lit this particular house on fire or why he wasn't wearing any clothes.
