Teen admits to arson with flaming marshmallows

AUBURN — A central New York teenager faces prison time after admitting he threw flaming marshmallows at his neighbor’s house.

The Auburn Citizen reports  that 18-year-old John Munger pleaded guilty Thursday in Cayuga County Court to fourth-degree felony arson.

He admitted tossing the blazing balls of sugar at a gas meter on the side of his neighbor’s house. Although the meter wasn’t seriously damaged, Munger admitted that it could have been.

He noted that he was drunk at the time.

In a plea deal, Munger will also plead guilty to violating his felony burglary probation by getting convicted of arson. He faces two to six years in prison for the arson and probation violation.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 12.
