    DC - David Pitts, Amer. Univ. Dept Head, Arrested for Arson and Burglary

    David Pitts - the university's chairman of the Department of Public Administration and Policy - was arrested by D.C. police and charged with burglary and destruction of property in the incident at 3 a.m.

    A police report accuses Pitts of breaking into the mall and setting a fire in its parking garage. Pitts was reportedly found with matches, lighters, gloves, a newspaper and black liquid substance. Plus, there was evidence of a small fire still visible.

    According to his arrest documents, near about 1 a.m. Thursday, Montgomery officers spotted Pitts setting a chair on fire near a guard shack at his apartment complex's parking garage, reports The Washington Post. He then lit a newspaper in front of a Starbucks and then set a fire in the woods off Embassy Park Drive. Officers immediately informed the D.C. police who arrested him after a small chase.

    He later admitted entering the building, but "blamed [it] on a disoriented state and a need to obtain an envelope in his name containing a prescription from the office of his psychiatrist who has an office on the third floor."
    Officers later searched Pitts' home, and found 5,431 prescription pills including Cialis, Ambien, Lunestra and Hydrocodone.

    The trial for an American University professor who was arrested for breaking into a building near campus and setting a fire is set for January 20...

    The defense is hoping that prosecutors will offer a plea deal before the trial.

    A former American University professor has been sentenced to two years in prison, after he admitted to setting fires and burglarizing a pharmacy.

    However, Judge Zoe Bush agreed to suspend all but one year and a day of his sentence.

    Professor David Pitts pleaded guilty to burglary and identity theft in January as part of a plea deal.
