Penn State Kid Tries To Annoy Girlfriend By Setting Off Fire Alarm, Gets Charged With Arson

Benjamin Bishop and his girlfriend got into a fight, because that’s what couples do — they fight. Unfortunately, the situation took a wrong turn when an employee at Penn State’s Simmons Hall called University police at 6:30 in the morning over what was considered suspected arson.

From Centre Daily:

Officers found burnt paper and a charred pack of Marlboro cigarettes near a stairwell in the building. Video surveillance showed a man later identified as Benjamin Bishop, 18, of Doylestown, try to trigger the alarm first with a lit cigarette, then by burning the pack and papers attached to a door in the building, according to police.

Bishop turned himself in and told the cops he was just trying to set off the fire alarm to annoy his girlfriend. He claimed to have been drunk and not on his anxiety meds at the time of the incident.

Look, I’m no expert in how to annoy your girlfriend, because that shit just comes naturally to me, but I feel like setting off a fire alarm probably isn’t gonna do the trick. If it were me in this situation, here are a few things I would consider:

1) Bang her roommate.
2) Bang her sister.
3) Bang her mom.
4) Dump her ass.

I’m not trying to face jail time over some petty shit. Bishop is currently being held in the Centre County Correctional facility for arson accusations, possessing incendiary materials, risking catastrophe, and disorderly conduct.
