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 “Halfy” 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.

“I 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,” he said, smoking a blunt in a YouTube video in 2012.
