Kenneth Evans Set His Ex-Wife's Bed on Fire -- Again

Kenneth Evans, from his prison days.
Kenneth Robert Evans apparently would like his ex-wife to be in bed when he drops by her place for a visit.

That seems to be the case because when his ex-wife's not in bed, Evans, 38, has a tendency to light the bed on fire.

Evans was arrested Monday for the latest bed-torching, according to court documents obtained by New Times, after police caught up with him to ask about the May 21 incident in Glendale.

According to the documents, the only reasoning Evans had for lighting his ex-wife's bed on fire this time around was that he was "angry that she was not home."

For having a life outside laying in bed, Evans told the cops he lit it up. Even better, Evans didn't quite manage to put out the fire before it started burning up his ex-wife's bedroom, the documents say.

The documents state the fire caused "major damage" to the woman's bedroom -- to the tune of $15,000.

As we mentioned above, this isn't the first time Evans has gone to fire to deal with his ex-wife's bedroom.

Last time, Evans set the bed ablaze, took a picture of the flaming bed, and texted the photo to his ex-wife before extinguishing the fire, according to the documents.

Evans -- who's listed in court documents as unemployed and transient -- was picked up by the cops Monday at a Glendale apartment complex.

He's been charged with arson of an occupied structure, and a judge set his bond at $30,000.

According to court records, Evans has several drug-related criminal convictions, and served nearly a year in prison from mid-2007 to 2008 for theft and drug convictions.

I am going to say this once and make it very, very clear. I am "the ex-wife" in this story. And this story had better be pulled and removed from the internet now! It is false. You do nor have your facts straight and i take great offence to it.

1) He did not -"drop by my place". He also lived in the residence with me.

2) "He wanted his ex-wife in bed". When and where is it documented that he said he wanted me in the bed. No where!

3) He has a "tenancy", and the "latest" and "this time", all these are referring to him setting the bed on fire on more than one ovation. This is a lie! And it is slanderious!

4) "Not the first time". Where do you get your information? Out of YouTube ass? This was the first time this had happened.

5) And lastly, Kenneth was not a transient! He lived there in the house with me.

I am extremely missed of! I want this crab off the internet now. And I am willing to take legal action if you make me! --Holly Osback

"Laying in bed" ?  Don't you mean "lying in bed" ?    On second thought, maybe you don't.
