CORDELE, Ga. -- A Georgia man facing arson charges for burning his own home is blaming nine or 10 beers, and a disaster movie.
Charles Adams told Crisp County authorities he had been drinking while watching the movie "Day After Tomorrow."
Adams allegedly told deputies that after watching the special-effects extravaganza depicting deadly natural disasters caused by global warming, he decided to set fire to pillows on his bed.
The flames destroyed his doublewide mobile home.
