Police suspect Owen also started a fire in a trash can outside the Haynes' garage. Police said the fire quickly spread into the Haynes' home.
What part of the movie the boy referred to was unclear. The 2010 movie is a series of often raunchy pranks, stunts and skits. It ends with fiery explosions that propel the stars into the air. A version called “Jackass 3.5” was released on DVD in June and features skits not shown in the theater. One skit features shaken pop bottles rocketing across a room.
Police reported a witness, Zack Kitchens, told detectives Owen had been at his house before the fire. Police described Kitchens as a friend of the suspect. Kitchens said Owen was intoxicated, taking Xanax and trying to fight everyone, police reported.
Kitchens said he took Owen home and later learned Owen sent text messages to some girls about making the Molotov cocktails, police reported.
Owen has not been charged. A judge told him Friday prosecutors will have a charge filed against him in a week or so.
