Man tries to set fire to house due to 'ghost'

A man in California has been arrested for arson after attempting to set fire to his neighbor's house.
The bizarre incident, which was caught on security camera on Thursday evening, saw a 38-year-old man empty a full canister of diesel all over his neighbor's front porch.

Fortunately, due to his choice of fuel, he was unable to get a fire started.

The house's occupants - a woman and two children - had been home at the time.

What made the situation particularly disturbing was the fact that the man had tried to explain his actions by insisting that he had seen a ghost inside the house and was trying to get rid of it.

He was ultimately charged with arson and attempted murder.

"They arrested him," said the homeowner. "He said that he didn't have anything against us, that he thought he saw a ghost in our house and to me that's just even scarier."

Drugs or mental illness. Nothing to see here.

Would fire even kill a ghost? I mean, as far as I'm concerned they don't even exist but how would fire kill them? They're already dead.

Is this publicity for a new Paranormal Activity movie?

If that would have been gasoline, he would have arsoned himself in the process.  Not very bright to light gasoline standing on the fuel and it inches away from ones face.  Have fun in prison, jackass.

He should also have been done for stalking.  Luckily the family were unharmed - physically. Now they can recover mentally knowing this lunatic neighbour will not be coming back too soon, hopefully never at all.
