Calvin D. Ball

A fight led a Johnson City man to pour gasoline on his neighbor's porch and into the living room where an infant was sleeping early Wednesday morning, but his father stopped him from setting the house on fire, Johnson City police said.

Calvin D. Ball Jr., 30, 607 Lyle St., was charged with attempted aggravated arson.

Police were called to 1812 Mary St. around 12:45 a.m. and learned that Ball had been in a fight with his neighbor and tried to assault him with a wrench, police said.
