Young man of 21 admits crime and has already been detained
A man who aspired to be a famous Internet meteorologist was detained after he allegedly intentionally started a fire, reports Gizmodo.
According to police reports to the Associated Press, 21-year-old Johnny Mullis will have admitted firing the blaze to get more followers on Facebook.
“He likes to post videos on Facebook and there are a lot of people following him because of his weather forecasts, so that’s basically why he did it,” says the Kentucky police chief.
In the video in question – ‘Dangerous forest fire’ – the man stands in front of the fire and informs people to be very careful if they are near the place.
Video views have almost doubled compared to others.
