An 18-year-old man is facing an arson charge for flipping over his family's couch and lighting it on fire in their home.

Ty Thompson is expected to make his initial court appearance on
Tuesday. Lincoln police arrested him Saturday evening.

Police say Thompson was making threats while in the car with his mother and her two other children. When they got home, Thompson
went into the house, flipped over the couch and lit it on fire.

The fire was out by the time police and firefighters arrived, but Thompson was arrested after police found he had a lighter.
