An Adelanto man was arrested Monday afternoon (March 13) after attempting to ignite the gas pumps at Michael’s Liquor Store, on 11424 Chamberlaine Way in Adelanto.
According to Victor Valley News, a 48-year old man, later identified as Keith Wayne Bailey, was standing near the gas pumps at the business after he demanded the clerk at the business call an ambulance for him. The clerk could not see a valid reason to call an ambulance and refused to do so. That’s when Bailey threatened to blow up the gas station and began trying to start a fire.
Bailey was arrested and charged with attempted arson and criminal threats.
