Aspiring Weatherman Set Wildfire to Get More Video Views
There's a guy in Kentucky who did something insanely stupid last week to try to get attention. Now he's getting it, just not the way he wanted.
21-year-old Johnny Mullins from Jenkins, Kentucky is an aspiring weatherman. He's been posting videos of himself making weather forecasts on Facebook for a little while now, but he hasn't built much of a following.
There have been a lot of wildfires in his area lately, so he came up with the horrible idea to set one and film himself in front of it to try to get attention to his videos.
The cops quickly traced the fire back to him and he was arrested for second-degree arson. Fortunately no one was hurt in the fire, and the fire department was able to contain it.
Johnny's video about the fire only got a few thousand views on Facebook.
