Police arrest man for threatening to set occupied home on fire

MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

An area man was arrested last Friday after threatening to set a house on fire, while three children, his wife and sister were inside.

David Duane Lee faces charges of attempted arson, three counts of endangering a child, two counts of assault-family violence with prior conviction, and theft under $500, for an incident on September 27. Lee is being held on a total of $651,000 bond in the McLennan County Jail.

Deputies were called out to Centerline Rd. Friday afternoon, after receiving a call that a man was threatening to set fire to a house and burn the occupants out.

A McLennan County spokesman says the man lived in the house and had been locked out after a family disturbance at his sister's home, which is down the street.

Lee is accused of assaulting his sister and wife during the disturbance at his sister's house.

When the two women fled to the house on Centerline Rd., Lee is accused of spreading lighter fluid around the foundation and threatening to burn them out if they did not let him in.

Deputies arrived on the scene and took Lee into custody. There were also three children inside the house, so counts of endangering a child were added to his attempted arson and assault-family violence charges.
