Bishop reportedly set the club on fire early Wednesday and fled to a nearby Walmart. A bystander, who alerted police about the blaze, said Bishop told him to “leave the fire along and mind his own business,” WSAZ reported. Deputies discovered Bishop near the scene with a black trash bag. The envious lover told police he “Was tired of his girlfriend working at JB’s, so he set it on fire,” WCHS-TV reported. source

No one was injured in the fire but there was about $1,000 in damage, Jim Reed, the club’s owner, told WSAZ. Reed said Bishop’s girlfriend’s job was also in jeopardy.

Bishop was being held at Western Regional Jail on a $10,000 bond. He was charged with second-degree arson.
