Joshua Hughes Danced Around The Flames Like A Wild Indian - That Is Until He Discovered He Was Trapped Inside A Library

Lincoln, Nebraska (The Weekly Vice) - Joshua Hughes, a 25-year-old Lincoln man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly burned several books at a local library after hours, then had to call 911 because he couldn't find his way out of the building.

According to Lincoln police, Hughes reportedly hid inside the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Love Library North until after it closed at 11:00 p.m.. He then lit three books on fire, but had to call 911 at 2:17 a.m. because he couldn't find a way out of the library as the books burst into flames. Officers found Hughes in the basement of the Love Library South.

Investigators say when Hughes was apprehended, he requested to speak to the former president George W. Bush because he wanted his favorite president to know that he was in trouble. He stated that he burned the books because he was upset with UNL medical staff.

Hughes was booked into the Lancaster County Jail and charged with felony first-degree arson. His bond was set at 10% of $25,000. He was also ordered to stay away from the UNL campus.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 15th. If convicted, he could face up to 50 years in prison.
