Even Alexander Hamilton doesn’t think he’s worth that much trouble.Robert Denison knows the value of a dollar. Unfortunately, thanks to his wild overvaluation of 10 of them he’ll be spending the next four years of his life in jail.According to court records, on August 30th the 22-year-old Kellop man went with his buddy to the home of Gary Lee Lindsey and demanded repayment of a $10 debt. When Lindsey refused to return the equivalent of a non-matinee screening at the local AMC, Denison did the only sensible thing he could think of: he hit Lindsey in the face with a brick then burned his house down.Denison pleaded guilty to second-degree arson in a Cowlitz County court yesterday. Here’s hoping he gets a better grasp on simple economics — and the value in picking your battles — before settling into his next home.
