Boide and his friend, 19-year-old Nicholas Haegele, werecharged earlier this year for six arsons in St. Clair County, Illinois.

In May, a spokesperson for the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department referred to the pair as "idiots" and "Beavis and Butthead," because the pair "kept dropping stuff" at the scenes.
