THEODORE (AP) — Mobile Police say a man apparently upset because he didn’t get a Christmas present set fire to his mobile home.

Police Corporal Charles Bagsby Jr., a spokesman, said the trailer in Theodore went up in flames Thursday around 2:30 p.m.

Officers charged 45-year-old Lawrence Edward Lee of Theodore with reckless endangerment and public intoxication.

Bagsby said the mobile home was destroyed.

Investigators have not determined how Lee allegedly started the blaze.
