Posted By on Mon, Oct 4, 2010 at 2:59 PM

Michael Warner, a 27-year-old Caucasian with no fixed address, has been charged with burning eight outhouses and three hand-washing stations.

Warner's alleged Saturday arson spree took place in the 400 block of Mission Bay Boulevard at around 7 p.m.; a witness saw him hop a fence and later identified him to police.

When asked if Warner was a suspect in the string of dozens of outhouse arsons that captivated this city in 2008 and 2009, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said there was "nothing to indicate" he was guilty of any other crimes, outhouse-related or not.

The suspect remains in lockup at county jail and is facing 11 counts of

arson and one count of possession of ignitable materials.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
