TUSTIN, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California teenager has been caught pouring gasoline on his sleeping mother.
The woman wasn't hurt.
Orange County sheriff's investigators say the 16-year-old boy's stepfather walked into the bedroom of the Tustin home on Sunday night before the gas was ignited.
The teen and his mother had been arguing earlier in the day.
The Orange County Register says the boy is in juvenile hall where he has been booked for investigation of attempted murder.
The nature of the argument hasn't been disclosed.
