SYKESVILLE, Md. - A Sykesville man faces assault and reckless endangerment charges for allegedly setting his wife's hair on fire during a dispute.
The Carroll County Times ( http://bit.ly/RWeFsV) reported Thursday that 43- year-old John Michael Boone is free on $20,000 bail.
He was arrested Tuesday by a sheriff's deputy who was called to the couple's home for a reported domestic dispute.
Police say Boone lit up his wife's hair after a verbal and physical altercation. They say she quickly extinguished the fire.
Boone couldn't be reached Thursday for comment. His home telephone line was constantly busy. Court records do not list a defense attorney.
