The Weekly Vice) - David Smith, a 38-year-old Oklahoma man, has jailed Monday after he allegedly set his father on fire during an argument over loud music.
According to Oklahoma City Police, Smith was sitting on his bedroom floor listening to music when his father walked in and asked him to turn the music down.
Instead, Smith turned the music up, which sparked an argument between the two men. In retaliation, Smith grabbed a can of gasoline from the kitchen, poured it on his father, then used a cigarette to set him on fire.
The father and a woman living at the residence put out the flames while Smith fled the scene. The victim was rushed to an area hospital where he was treated for burns to his chest, legs and face.
Police located Smith walking down a street wearing a necklace made out of prescription pills. He did not have a prescription for the pills.
He was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail and charged with attempted murder, first-degree arson and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
