Man Sentenced To Prison For Boyne Highlands Resort Fire
Back in December a fire was reported at Boyne Highlands Resort. Reports say David Soltysiak, of Petosky, not only set the fire in a room, but also ran from security and sprayed a fire extinguisher at a guard.
Soltysiak plead no contest to the charges of second-degree arson and felonious assault. Authorities say drugs and alcohol were used by the man before starting the fire. The 31-year-old man claims to have no memory of before or after the fire. Twelve people were injured in the incident.
Now, Soltysiak, will face up to 20 years in prison with a minimum of 13 years and 3 months behind bars.
