Man accused of threat with bow, arrow

BELLINGHAM -- A sheriff's officer says a Washington man accused of pointing a bow and arrow at his girlfriend and trying to light his home on fire with a burning blanket has been arrested.
Whatcom County Undersheriff Jeff Parks said Chris Larsen, 54, had been arguing with the woman on Monday and by evening he was intoxicated. The two live together in a Birch Bay house northwest of Bellingham.
Parks said the woman called 911 from a neighbor's home to tell officers her boyfriend had shot arrows into some of her belongings and also aimed the loaded bow at her.
The undersheriff said Larsen refused to come out when deputies arrived but they could see him dip a blanket in oil and try to ignite it with a lighter.
Deputies moved in and arrested Larsen early Tuesday for investigation of attempted arson and domestic violence assault. The Bellingham Herald reported that only the blanket burned.
Bail was later set at $500,000.
