Florida Man Lights Jesus Statue on Fire
Citrus County Deputies arrested a Florida man on Friday for lighting a statue of Jesus in the parking lot of a Beverly Hills church. Deputies were called to the scene of what was called a brush fire at about 7 a.m.
When they got there, they discovered something else entirely. According to WBTW, a witness at the church told them that a man had run up to a statue of Jesus and a tree that was close by, doused them in gasoline, and set them both on fire.
The man could not be located. Later in the day, however, another fire was reported.
A private residence was damaged when a fence was covered in gasoline and then lit. Finally, a complete house was set ablaze, causing heavy damage.
No one was injured during the fire. Thanks to video surveillance and the information of witnesses, police later identified the suspect as 25-year-old James Lee Harris of Beverly Hills.
Harris is now incarcerated and charged with several counts, including arson to a dwelling, criminal mischief and arson/criminal mischief to a church.
