Man Arrested for Dousing Children with Lighter Fluid Article

A Plant City man was arrested and charged with arson, aggravated assault and two counts of child abuse after he used lighter fluid to douse a home, a woman and her two children.

Reports say that Randy Lee Lisenby, 44, became upset when the woman whom he shared a home with kicked him out because of his heavy drug use.

He proceeded to splash a bottle of lighter fluid on the doorway of the home and the two toddlers.  The woman and her two children escaped before Lisenby set fire to a rug and blanket in the children’s bedroom.

He was arrested before he was able to further damage the home.

Lisenby is held without bail at a county jail.
