A 15-year-old Columbus boy allegedly set fire to a Lake Rushin Drive bedroom and resisted an officer Saturday afternoon, police said.
Officers were called to the home around 5:20 p.m. about a domestic disturbance. When they arrived, they heard that the boy had set a fire in a bedroom and broken a bedroom window with a brick, reports state.
About $100 in damage was done, police said.
Officers also learned that the 15 year old hadn’t been to school all week, reports state.
