LUTCHER, La. (AP) - A 21-year-old man an 18-year-old woman are in jail tonight, accused of setting fire to the Lutcher High School football stadium.
The stadium burned November 15th. St. James Parish Sheriff Willy Martin tells WAFB-TV that Adam Lambert faces a charge of arson while Lindsey Matherne was booked with accessory to simple arson.
Martin says Lambert was already in jail on drug charges when he confessed to setting the fire.
The stadium was a total loss.
Lutcher's football coach says plans are in the works for a new stadium. The only thing saved from the old facility was the brand-new press box.
