On Tuesday, February 19, 2013 a male subject was arrested for false ID to a police officer and illegally burning without a permit. The male decided he needed to set a fire in the backyard of his apartment. He was initially contacted by Engine 11 and understood he was wrong to burn his belongings in public. Over four hours later they returned and the subject’s attitude had changed and he was arrested.
