A Florida man is facing an arson charge after police say he set fire to a Tampa, FL apartment complex to get back at the management for requesting that he no longer masturbate in front of the windows or the open door.
Four people were left homeless as a result of the fire, according to Tampa Fire Rescue officials, which broke out just after 10 p.m. at the Mar Plaza Apartments at 4817 E Temple Heights Road, near Busch Boulevard and N 56th Street.
A resident of one of the apartments told police that his neighbor, Kenneth Haskins, 58, admitted to setting the fire, according to an arrest report. Haskins, who lives in the apartment where the fire started, later told detectives that he wanted to get back at the company that manages Mar Plaza, police said. His reason: They had recently told him to stop masturbating in front of his open windows and front door, according to police. He was arrested on a charge of first-degree arson and held in the Orient Road Jail without bail.
Haskins, who has lived there for more than a decade, suffers from facial disfigurement that is the result of having previously shot himself in the face with a shotgun, according to Tampa police.
