SAPULPA — A Bristow man who is accused of flicking a lit cigarette that ignited nearly 60,000 acres in Creek County in 2012, destroying hundreds of homes, has been arrested.
Billy Cloud, 40, was booked into the Creek County Jail about 4:30 a.m. on a charge of third-degree arson, or, in the alternative, unlawful burning of grass and woodlands during a burn ban. His bail is set at $40,000, jail records indicate.
Creek County Sheriff’s Sgt. Les Vaughan said Cloud was arrested during a warrants sweep Wednesday, along with suspects in several unrelated cases.
