Losing Divorcing Husband Sets Fire to Wife’s Lawyer’s Office

A South Carolina man embroiled in a drawn out divorce was not very happy with how his case was going.

The court had ordered him to pay temporary alimony and attorneys’ fees to his wife.

And he didn’t want to.

So he devised a way around it – or so he thought.

He allegedly torched his wife’s lawyer’s office.

But that turned out not to be the best way to handle the situation.

In addition to his other troubles, he was charged with stalking, burglary and arson – and held in jail without bond.

This is not a recommended strategy for success in family court.
