Police have arrested a second person, appropriately enough named Thomas Weed, in connection with a drug lab that exploded in the Ingleside neighborhood last week.

Weed, 26, was arrested yesterday on suspicion of recklessly causing a fire that burned a 12-year-old boy when he and 32-year-old Angelic Cisneros allegedly exploded a drug lab inside their Ingleside home.

Police were called to 1228 Capitol Ave. shortly after 9 p.m. on Feb. 7 after firefighters extinguished a small blaze and discovered what they believed was a drug lab. Sure enough, when police arrived, they found drug paraphernalia, not to mention an exploded butane tank. The windows inside the home had been blown out, police said.

What's worse is Cisneros and the boy -- who police would not confirm was Cisneros' son -- went to St. Luke's Hospital, where they were transferred to the St. Francis Burn Center.The boy was severely injured and required skin grafts to his face and body, police said.

Both Weed and Cisneros remain in San Francisco County Jail on a $350,000 bail.

  • 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.'"
