Arrest Made In Md. Gasoline Attack

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Police in Frederick say they have charged a local man with attempted arson and 13 counts of reckless endangerment for pouring about two gallons of gasoline inside an apartment building. 

They say Demetrius Beynum, 32, had been in a traffic accident earlier Wednesday outside the complex on Heather Ridge Drive. After his car was towed, he allegedly poured gasoline on the interior, second-floor landing. 

Assistant State Fire Marshal Marc McNeal says residents of 12 apartments were displaced for about two hours Wednesday evening while authorities removed the gasoline-soaked carpet and ventilated the building.
