The late New York Giants owner Wellington Mara must be turning over in his grave right now. And it has absolutely nothing to do with the way the Giants have performed on the football field this year.
Rather, he must be turning over in his grave because his grandson Stephen Mara—the 26-year-old son of Wellington's son Stephen Mara, Sr.—was arrested early yesterday and charged with arson. And why was he charged with arson? Well, the hot-headed Mara allegedly set a bunch of motorcycles on fire in the Gramercy Park section of Manhattan at about 2:15 a.m. yesterday. It seems the men who own the bikes frequently rev their engines late at night and set off car alarms and carbon monoxide detectors inside of Mara's building as a result of it. So he took it upon himself to set fire to the bikes to stop all the commotion. But he was busted by a security guard who was working nearby at the time and saw Mara set fire to the bikes using a lighter.
"For someone to do this, you have to be sick in the head," Frank Galea, the super of Mara's building, said after hearing about the incident.
Yeah, you can say that again. As a result of his actions, Mara was charged with three counts of arson. He was released on $40,000 bail but is due back in court soon to answer to the charges filed against him. What a crazy way to handle a problem.
