A teenager was arrested on a charge of arson after allegedly setting a girl’s home on fire because she kicked him out of a party, police in Massachusetts said.

Northampton police said that they have arrested 19-year-old Will Lombardi, after being accused of throwing a cardboard box onto the porch of the girl’s home and setting it on fire because he was angry with her.

Lombardi was charged with one count of arson. Lombardi was released from custody without bail.

According to the police investigation, around 1:00 a.m. on Friday, a homeowner noticed an orange glow on the porch of his home.

He then realized that there was a burning box on the porch. He quickly threw a water bottle into the box and called the police.

Police officers who arrived at the scene, found that the fire caused permanent damage to the wood on the front porch.

The officers inspected the box and found the name and address of Lombardi. The homeowner’s daughter told police that she had an encounter with Lombardi at a party.

After telling him to leave, Lombardi became extremely agitated with her, and sent her threatening and harassing messages on Facebook.

When questioned by police, Lombardi admitted that he was very upset with the girl after the altercation.
