Do you have a stupid tweaker friend in the Valley who likes setting couches on fire?

Well, the L.A. Fire Department would like to have a talk with him because, as it turns out, that's arson, which is illegal. Even in Van Nuys.

Here's a video of your stupid friend from Sept. 29 at the corner of Vesper and Aetna. Hopefully he can at least enjoy this 4 minute, 14 second boomlet of Internet mini-fame, because it's gonna suck spending the rest of the weekend in a cell at the Van Nuys police station.

The phone number for the LAFD's arson bureau is (213) 893-9850. And remember kids, the proper way to enjoy a holiday blaze is a YouTube yule log video, OK?
