Maine Man Arrested For Threatening to Burn Apartment Building
30 year old Michael Baldwin of Mexico, Maine, has been arrested for threatening to burn down a 3-story apartment building in Rumford.
According to News Center Maine, Michael Baldwin was evicted from his unit in the apartment on Wednesday and subsequently threatened to burn the building down on Thursday morning.
