Terre Haute Man Arrested On Arson Charges

A Terre Haute man has been arrested on arson charges.

Police say that Christopher Brown was tired of having his home burglarized, so he set fire to the house.

His girlfriend and her 14 year old son were in the home at the time.

Witnesses told of how they saw Brown with a gas can light the house on fire and then get in this car and drive away.

Brown was arrested by police after a short chase.

Brown said in court he thought he should be able to burn his home and that is when the prosecution pointed out that the real problem was that there were people inside.

Brown is being held on $75,000 bond and will be in court Thursday.

He has a history of violence that includes charges of battery against the boy when he was just 2 years old.
