white plains arson arrestWHITE PLAINS, Ky. (4/28/14) ― A White Plains man was charged with second-degree arson after police say he deliberately lit a pile of clothes on fire with a lighter after having an argument with his girlfriend inside the residence.

According to a Hopkins County Sheriff's report, Deputy LyDon Logan went to assist the White Plains Volunteer Fire Department at 12:04 p.m. Saturday, April 26 with a house fire on East Railroad Street. While there, Logan reported watching a man behind the residence while the fire department attempted to fight the fire.

The man was identified as William Brown, 57. While speaking with Brown, Logan determined Brown had been drinking. After further investigation, Logan also learned that Brown and his girlfriend were in an altercation inside the residence, in which Brown threatened to burn the house down.

Brown was also charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and wanton endangerment.
