Utah Man Sets Snoring Wife’s Pants Ablaze
East Idaho News ^ | April 1, 2013

Posted on 04/02/2013 3:43:11 PM PDT by nickcarraway

A 60-year-old Salt Lake City man has been charged with aggravated arson after he set his wife’s pants on fire. Bryce Whitaker and his wife had been arguing about her snoring, which led Whitaker to take a pair of pants and set them on fire with a candle when she wasn’t looking. Whitaker later woke up his wife when the fire grew out of control. No injuries were reported.

Geez...

I’m trying to figure what’s really worse here. Snoring or malicious burning of clothes with people in them....

Well, whichever one lands in prison will help shed light on that answer :O

Ok, how does burning her pants stop her snoring?
Why doesn’t he just sleep in another room?

I heard tales about feeling a burning sensation in the drawers after a night with a certain gal.

His claim: she snored.
Her claim: she didn’t.

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

Here comes old rosie she’s looking mighty fine
Here comes hot nancy she’s steppin’ right on time
There go the street lights bringin on the night
Here come the men faces hidden from the light
All through the shadows they come and they go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below

ROFLH (hysterically) Keyword: hobbies?

A bellowing spouse is no laughing matter, but I’m going to remember this the next time I’m having the urge to smother him with a pillow.
That’s absolutely great!

Good thing she was just snoring. If it had been breaking wind, then setting her pants on fire could have been catastrophic!

Nope; nothing in the article about her being IN them at the time.

I found the reference: http://murderpedia.org/male.H/h/hardin-john-wesley.htm
 
 
 
 
 

The shooting of a "snoring" man

Hardin and several of his fellow cow herders had put up for the night at the "American House Hotel". Sometime during the evening, Hardin, and at least one other cow hand, began firing bullets through the bedroom wall and ceiling, in an attempt to stop the snoring which was coming from the next room. A sleeping stranger, Charles Cougar, was killed. (In his autobiography, Hardin claimed he was shooting at a man who was in his room to rob or kill him, and that he did not realize they had accidentally killed a man in the other room until much later.) Hardin realized he would be in trouble with Hickok for firing his gun within the city limits. Half-dressed, he and his men exited through a second story window and ran onto the roof of the hotel —just in time to see Hickok arriving with four policemen. "I believe," Hardin wrote later, "that if Wild Bill found me in a defenseless condition, he would take no explanation, but would kill me to add to his reputation".

A contemporary newspaper report of the shooting noted: "A man was killed in his bed at a hotel in Abilene, Monday night, by a desperado called "Arkansas". The murderer escaped. This was his sixth murder." Hardin leaped from the roof into the street and hid in a haystack for the rest of the night. He stole a horse and made his way back to the cow camp outside town. The next day, he left for Texas, never to return to Abilene. Years later, Hardin made a casual reference to the episode: "They tell lots of lies about me," he complained, "They say I killed six or seven men for snoring. Well, it ain't true. I only killed one man for snoring."

Snoring can ruin a good night’s sleep.

Whenever we go camping my son is constantly shoving me awake when I snore.

Oh well. being that I don’t click unfamiliar outside links, it’s hard for me to know that.

But I do appreciate the heads up on that, Elsie.

I’m a little less shocked knowing that, but still what an odd course of action to take.

It was a very small article. I think the whole thing was copied for the start of this thread.

Heh. I see where it says he took a pair of pants...but I still can’t understand the connection between my wife snores, so I’m going to burn her pants.

So then it would seem that he smartly burned them inside the house, I am assuming, and then failed to properly tend the in house blaze. Then he had to wake his snoring wife, who probably made fun of him for being such a tool.

I don’t even know what to say.

Obviously a democrat.

I guess when she denied the snoring he was trying to emphasize the old, “liar, liar” adage...

He should have just bought her an OTC snoring remedy and saved the arrest record! There are definitely better solutions out there than lighting your wife’s pants on fire :0

Mu husband snores like a train. Seriously, he used to rattle the lamp on the headboard. I bought him a chinstrap, and the snoring stopped. Sweet relief. And I didn’t even have to light his pants ablaze LOL.
