Man set his mother's clothes on fire because she wouldn't give him money to buy marijuana

A Texas man is facing charges after investigators say he set his mother's clothes on fire at an apartment in northwest Harris County on Saturday morning.

Investigators say the damage was minor at the complex with damage limited to the clothing.

"Our investigation found that 18-year-old John 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," said Lt. Dean Hensley with the Harris County Fire Marshal Office.

Carter was arrested and charged with arson, then booked into the Harris County Jail. He's out on a $30,000 bond.
