Report: Alleged Trump hotel arsonist was looking for trouble

The man accused of setting two fires at the Trump International Hotel said he had not slept all night and had been wandering around when he decided to go into the hotel and see what trouble he could get into, according to his arrest report.

Roger Fraley, 28, is facing charges of arson and burglary.

He is accused of taking toasters and stuffing them with paper and towels to start a fire in the women's bathroom on the pool deck and in a room on the 17th floor.

Police were called to the hotel on Fashion Show Drive on April 26 after an employee told security they saw Fraley carrying two toasters and acting suspicious, the report said.

Fraley did fight with Trump security officers as they took him into custody. One security officer suffered minor injuries.

Fraley did initially lie about his identity, but then admitted who he was and said he was felt messed up after walking around all night and wanted to see what trouble he could create, the report said.
