A Miami, Florida, lawyer’s pants went up in flames during a 2017 arson trial. If you’re not familiar with arson, it is the act of deliberately setting fire to something, usually property. The Miami lawyer, Stephen Gutierrez, was representing a man who was accused of setting his car on fire for insurance money when his pants spontaneously burst into flames. Gutierrez blamed a faulty battery in his electronic cigarette for igniting in his pocket at a coincidental time, but investigators believe he is a liar, liar, pants on fire.
