Police: Man Banned From Church Admits to Starting Fire

LAS VEGAS -- The man accused in setting a church on fire June 14 told police he started the blaze because the pastor tried to "back door" him, according to the arrest report released Monday.

Adrian Kincade, 35, is facing charges of burglary and first degree arson in connection to the fire set at Nellis Baptist Church, 4300 N. Las Vegas Blvd.

According to the report, Kincade said the pastor "is not keeping it real." When asked about the fire, he told detectives, "I started it," the report said.

Kincade then described how he set the fire, including setting a bench on fire with paper and matches, and a table set with decoration.

Church deacon Michael Etherton told police that Kincade had recently been trespassed from the church property for making life threats to the pastor and his family, the report said. The deacon also said Kincade had smashed another deacon's phone against a wall a few years ago.

Damage was estimated at $100,000.
