Guy Gets Rid of Demons By Setting Closet on Fire

If you're convinced your bedroom is beset by demons, what is there to do but set your closet on fire? That's the tactic Adam Glenn Hamilton used, according to police. The 30-year-old Arizona man is accused of wandering around near his Avondale home on July 20, reciting Bible verses, before starting the closet fire with paint thinner. His roommates were home at the time; Hamilton explained to police that he meant to inform them about the conflagration but it slipped his mind. He ran away barefoot and was eventually found with burned feet and a lighter, taken to a hospital, and arrested there Monday on arson and other charges, the Arizona Republic reports.
