BRYAN -- Bryan police have released new details tonight surrounding Tuesday's arson and domestic disturbance call.

Police tell us, 20-year-old Christopher King, has been charged with trying to set his stepfather on fire.

According to police King went outside and lit the garage on fire where he was staying. He then came back inside the house and doused his step-dad in lighter fluid.

They say he threw a card board box at him that was already on fire.

King then tried to harm himself in the fire.

"Once he was cleared by the hospital he was finally booked over to the county on arson and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon," said Officer Jon Agnew. "And he's now currently in jail on a $27,000 bond."

Both charges are second degree felonies, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
