CROSS COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A man told Cross County sheriff's deputies he set a fire after he got bored Tuesday evening.

According to the Cross County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, a deputy and a detective responded to Highway 49 South to help the Fair Oaks and Wynne Fire Departments with a structure fire.

They arrived just before 5:30 p.m. and met with David Lee, who told them "he burnt the structure because he was bored."

They arrested Lee and now he’s charged with two felonies, one for arson and the other for breaking or entering.

Lee is in the Cross County Jail.

He’s expected to receive a bond Thursday.
