More Evidence That Alcohol & Advanced Technologies Don't Mix

More Evidence That Alcohol & Advanced Technologies Don't Mix

You know, advanced technologies like matches. From the November 4, 2009 Harvard Crimson:
A recent Harvard Law School graduate has been accused of setting fire to a New York City chapel that houses the remains of unidentified victims of the 9/11 attacks, leading to public outrage from the victims’ families.

Brian A. Schroeder, who graduated from the Law School last spring, turned himself into the police Monday on arson charges after a fire broke out at the chapel the morning of October 31.

Schroeder—whom The New York Daily News branded as “New York’s newest Public Enemy #1”—was arrested on counts of third degree arson, first degree reckless endangerment, second degree criminal mischief, and third degree burglary, according to the New York Police Department.

Schroeder was reportedly drunk at the time of the incident, and Schroeder’s attorney has claimed to media outlets that his client may have been drugged during a night of partying over Halloween weekend.

I'm sure that Law & Order's scriptwriters are busily churning out a thinly fictionalized version of this incident as we speak!
