Danville Man Accused of Arson Found Not Guilty

Danville, VA - A man accused of setting fire to a playground in Danville was found not guilty on Monday.

A judge acquitted Tyrus Beck on arson and felonious intentional damage of the playground at GHL Johnson Elementary School last September.

The fire caused about $120,000 worth of damage and the school has since rebuilt the playground.

The judge apparently found there wasn't enough evidence against Beck to convict him of setting the fire.
