Bay County Man's Attempt to Burn Home Ends with His Arrest

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - A Bay County man's attempt to burn his wife's home ended in his arrest.

Authorities say Gregory Lee Pippin Senior told them he tried to get his wife's attention by first knocking on her window.

When she didn't answer, he poured gasoline around the home -- sure she would come out to speak to him.

But the fire burned itself out, causing only minor damage to the area around the home. And Pippin fled the scene.

The woman later told police she was going through a divorce and Pippin was arrest on arson charges.
