Charges Pending Against Sparta Arsonist
The Monroe County DA is looking at felony charges of burglary and arson against a Sparta man who set a gas station on fire early Saturday morning. D.A. Dan Cary tells WIZM news that he is still looking over reports from the fire at Fast Eddie's in Sparta that 38 year old Bradford White is accused of setting.
White was apparently angry because the store would not sell him alcohol because he was intoxicated. He had been arrested earlier Friday for trying to steal alcohol from the gas station and was released to a family member.
Later that night, Cary says White went back to the gas station......broke in...stole some things....and started the grocery portion of the store on fire. He is currently in the Monroe County Jail awaiting formal charges.
