An arrest warrant has been issued for the man accused of setting the fire that destroyed Mother’s Bar. 29-year-old Brian T. Griffin has been charged with aggravated arson for allegedly knowingly damaging the building. In addition, two orders of protection were granted to Luther Holden and Willie Grady. Holden claims Griffin tried to kill him and aimed to burn down his apartment. Grady, meanwhile, said he went to his daughter’s apartment the day before the fire and was approached by Griffin, who attacked him with knives and threatened to kill him. Griffin remains at-large.
All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
