When officers arrived on scene, no vehicle was on fire but they say he lit his wife’s clothes on fire in the front yard.

Then they say he refused to come out the house.

Fearing the safety for the couple’s kids who were inside the house, deputies made forced entry into the home and took Edwards into custody
