Reefer Badness: Teen Torched Mom's Clothes After She Refused To Give Him Money To Buy Pot
Meet John Carter.
Angered that his mother would not give him money to purchase marijuana, the Texas teenager allegedly retaliated by setting her clothes on fire inside the family’s Houston apartment, according to investigators.
Carter, 17, allegedly torched the garments Saturday morning, causing minor damage to their residence.
A subsequent probe by the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office determined that “Carter was angry at his mother because she would not give him money so he could buy marijuana, so he started setting her clothes on fire.”
Arrested for arson, Carter was booked into the county jail, where he is being held in lieu of $30,000 bail.
