A Florida man set his girlfriend's closet on fire following an argument over a tablet device. 

The New York Daily News reports that Junior Richmond, 23, and the victim began arguing over the device at her Belle Glade, Fla. apartment when he started punching her in the head. He then took a cigarette lighter and set all of the clothes in her closet on fire. As the fire grew, Richmond fled, leaving the woman and her four children. 

The fire spread to five other apartments, but everyone managed to escape and responding firefighters extinguished the blaze. Richmond was arrested and charged with arson, battery and cruelty toward a child.
