KFC Arsonist Has Been Charged

A man is now charged with causing a disturbance and starting a fire at a Grand Traverse County restaurant.

The incident happened at the KFC on US-31 South in Garfield Township last week.

Jasen Woody is charged with fourth degree arson, having a controlled substance, breaking into a vehicle and assault.

Deputies say the manager asked the employee to leave work.

He was having some work-related issues and creating problems.

They say Woody then went outside and set some trees on fire.

He came back a few hours later, pushed the female manager and took belongings from her vehicle.
