A Hull man was arrested last week on multiple charges following a domestic dispute at a Hwy. 106 South home.

Two other officers arrived before Smith and took Davis into custody during this second call.

They were eventually able to get past him get to the vehicle to put the fire out. The victim said she found a Styrofoam plate on her back seat on fire and also found her gas tank open with a piece of smoldering paper towel in the gas tank. The man who alerted the victim to the fire said he witnessed Davis setting the fire.
