Woman Arrested for Arson Warrant


A woman goes to the courthouse to get information and ends up in jail.

Veronica Kelley is out on a $75,000.00 bond.

Kelley has pending DUI and domestic violence cases and went to the courthouse yesterday to get information.

A court clerk pulled her file and saw she had an outstanding warrant for arson and called the Sheriff's Office, and then kept her there until deputies arrested her.

According to an arrest affidavit, Kelley tried to start a fire in her own home in January.

She told deputies she was depressed and wanted to kill herself. They say no one was injured in the fire.

Kelley will be back in court next week to face charges.
