LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a 35-year-old man who admitted to setting fire to a Las Vegas church told them the pastor tried to "back door him" and was "not keeping it real."
A police report sheds more light on the arrest of 35-year-old Adrian Kincade, who was booked into Clark County jail on arson and burglary charges after the Friday morning fire.
Officials say the building is used by Nellis Baptist Church and Mission International Roca Eterna.
No injuries were reported. Clark County fire officials estimated damages at $100,000.
The report says Kincade told officers he used bricks to break the front glass door, and used matches and paper to light up a bench and a table.
A deacon told officers that Kincade previously threatened the pastor and bashed another deacon's phone.
