Ga. Man Watches Disaster Movie, Burns Home

CORDELE, Ga. - There was no "Day After Tomorrow" for Charles Alton Adams' mobile home, which the south Georgia man told police he set on fire after watching the disaster movie and drinking beer.

Adams, 32, walked into the Crisp County Law Enforcement Center early Thursday and told deputies he had burned down the doublewide home.

He told deputies that after watching "The Day After Tomorrow," a special-effects extravaganza depicting deadly natural disasters caused by global warming, and drinking nine or 10 beers, he decided to set fire to pillows on his bed.

When asked why, Crisp County Sheriff Donnie Haralson said, "I have asked that question myself. ... The whole thing just doesn't really make sense."

Haralson said Adams was been charged with arson. He remained jailed Friday as family members attempted to raise money for his bond.

I can image what the ad in the paper would look like:

Coincidentally, I watched that movie last night also. The only thing I would have burned was the DVD.

That must have been some good beer.
Maybe he thought he should get a nice fire going so he'd be ready for the ice age.
