A Tampa teenager doused his mom’s bed with gasoline and burned down her house on Sunday (April 22), after arguing with her about his cell phone.

Makes it kind of hard to send him to his room when it’s a pile of ashes.

Tampa Bay Online is reporting that Aldwin Chyrstian Caceres, 18, was arrested on charge of first-degree arson after dousing gas onto two living room couches and his mother’s bed, and igniting the furniture. The fire, which was reported shortly after midnight, destroyed the house. Thankfully no one was hurt.

Shortly after midnight on Saturday, the 6-foot, 275-pound Caceres, who lives with his mother, argued with her about a cell phone, police said. During the argument, he grabbed her by the wrists, pushed her onto her bed and head-butted her twice on the forehead.

Sounds like a perfect angel of a son.
