Jeff Acord at a previous BLM rally-march for Justice in June.
Corrected: This article has been updated and corrected to indicate that while the alleged suspect has posted support for leftist radicals on social media and attended BLM protests, he has not been confirmed as an Antifa member.
On Wednesday evening a Washington man named Jeffrey Acord called 911 to report a fire on the side of SR-167 near Pallyup, Washington.
After calling the police, Mr. Acord then set to live streaming himself to his Facebook Page. The video was later posted to YouTube. During the video you can see the police question Acord and after a period of time, the video ends as they arrest him for Reckless Burning 2nd Degree.
Jeff Acord was seen with a lighter in his hand walking on the highway earlier in the day in Sumner. According to Q13FOX — The Sumner Grade Fire in Sumner and Bonney Lake has burned more than 800 acres and was 20 percent contained as of Thursday morning.
He was later arrested for setting the fire.
He was live-streaming on Facebook when he was arrested!
