Man Sets Niece's Home on Fire After She Refuses to Drive Him to Liquor Store
Lets be honest, the niece-uncle bond is like the weakest family bond there is. So if a drunk uncle asks a niece to drive him to the liquor store as a favor, she's well within her right to ignore him. Well, 44-year-old Jerome Clemons up in Boynton Beachapparently feels otherwise. After his niece refused to drive him to a liquor store, the two got into an argument. The niece eventually left the home to avoid further confrontation. His brother showed up later to find Clemons on the porch mumbling things like "tired of it all" to himself. The brother proceeded to make dinner, but then saw that Clemons was trying to burn down the home. He had set a corner of it on fire. Luckily the damage to the home was minimal.
