A Florida man with half of a head has been arrested, accused of arson and attempted murder for allegedly setting his mattress on fire at his home.
31-year-old Carlos Rodriguez, nicknamed â€œHalfyâ€ by his friends, was at home when he decided to light his mattress on fire Monday.
It wasn’t immediately clear why he did it.
He appeared in court Tuesday under a $20,000 bond.
He lost the top portion of his head in a car accident while on drugs.
â€œI was barred out on drugs and I was driving and I hit a pole. I flew out the front window and landed on my head,â€ he said, smoking a blunt in a YouTube video in 2012.
