NY Man Settles Domestic Dispute By Setting His Own Pants On Fire
Yeah, that'll show 'em!
Domestic disputes can be a tense situation, but things really got out of hand when a 36-year-old man lit his pants on fire during an argument. Syracuse.com reports that the resulting blaze ended up destroying the house, along with a garage, and two vehicles.
Guess that plan backfired.
Authorities say the Hastings, N.Y. man was charged with two counts of 4th-degree arson, fourth-degree criminal mischief for reckless property damage, fourth-degree criminal mischief for intentional damage to property and second-degree reckless endangerment.
There is no word on whether or not the man or any other people were injured during the fire.
What he was hoping to accomplish by setting one of his own pairs of pants on fire is still a mystery. Police did not indicate if he had a backup pair available at the time of arrest.
Mr. Hot Pants is expected to appear in the Hastings Town Court April 16, according to Syracuse.com.
