Whoa There's A Fire!

12013_09_yotel.jpgA security guard has been arrested for setting fires at various trendy hotels he worked at in Manhattan. Mariano Barbosa Jr. had been working at hotels like the Yotel and Soho Grand and grew tired of dealing with customers who came to the hotels to party in their bars and restaurants. Instead of finding a new line of work or employer, Barbosa set the fires hoping management would alter its policies, thus making his job easier. Smart. [NYT]
