A Guy Burns Down His Own House to "Get Rid of Memories"

 

Well this doesn't seem like an extreme overreaction or anything.

  

There's a 31-year-old guy in Louisville, Kentucky named Alex Probus.  And on Saturday night, he BURNED DOWN his own HOUSE.

  

Why?  When the cops got there, he told them he was trying to, quote, "get rid of memories."

  

We're not sure what memories those were, but apparently it was his family's old house and he was about to lose it . . . so he decided to torch it instead.

  

Fortunately, no one was hurt in the fire, and the firefighters got it under control before it could spread.

  

But Alex was still arrested for second-degree arson.
