Man arrested for starting garage fire at ex-girlfriend's home in Waldorf
WALDORF, Md. (ABC7) —
A Fort Washington man is behind bars after police say he started a fire in his ex-girlfriend's garage during a domestic dispute in Waldorf Monday.
According to authorities, Tiffany Aursby called 911 while her ex-boyfriend, Charles Marvin Williams, was allegedly banging on her front door in the 4500 block of Ryan Place at around 2 p.m.
Aursby told 911 dispatchers that Williams had thrown a brick through her window and she saw an "orange glow" coming from her garage.
When deputies arrived at Aursby's home, they arrested Williams for malicious destruction of property and theft. Deputies say Williams had stolen Aursby's military I.D.
The small fire was then extinguished by deputies.
Williams was charged with Arson in the 1st Degree and Malicious Burning in the 2nd degree.
Authorities say Williams had violated a protective order Aursby had against him during the time of the incident.
