Meet 47-year-old Pamela Graf, a woman who has recently been arrested in Georgia for blaming Barack Obama for the cause of her house fire. Graf, a Forsyth County resident has been charged with arson in relation to the blaze, which occurred while she was allegedly in D.C., attending the Obama’s presidential inauguration. Graf originally claimed that her home was targeted by Forsyth County racists because she was an avid Obama supporter, but after a thorough investigation, officials revealed that Graf was actually involved in destroying her own home. Graf’s boyfriend, 46-year-old Steve Strobel, also was arrested.
Graf’s home was destroyed on Jan. 18 while she was allegedly in Washington, D.C., attending the inauguration. Officials found spray-painted graffiti that included a racial slur and ruled the fire an arson.
The fire, which was heavily involved upon the fire department’s arrival, resulted in a total loss of the structure. “These charges are based on information obtained through scene investigation, interviews and search warrants,” Fire Department Chief Investigator Steve Anderson said. “I would like to commend the entire Investigations Division staff for their fine and diligent work in this case.”Anderson noted the investigation is continuing and additional charges could be forthcoming.
Both Graf and Strobel were arrested on other charges February 3. Graf’s arrest stemming from drug charges unrelated to the fire and Strobel being arrested on charges of obstruction of justice and giving false statements. Both remain in the Forsyth County Detention Center. (Source)

Chris Brown appeared in an L.A. County Courthouse yesterday to enter his “Not Guilty” plea at his arraignment over the alleged beating of girlfriend, Rihanna.
According to press on-hand, “Brown quietly entered a not guilty plea on both of his felony charges of assault and making criminal threats.”
From here, the “Kiss Kiss” singer will return to court for a hearing on April 29. If convicted, he could face up to four years and eight months in prison.
Meanwhile, Rihanna’s lawyer, Donald Etra, told press following the arraignment: “What happened this afternoon is what we fully expected would happen this afternoon. It was merely a routine matter.” (Source)

She was spotted arriving at the airport in Barbados and has made it clear she doesn’t want to testify in the case and wants Brown to cop a plea. It’s also being said that one of the main reasons she’s in Barbados right now is because “she wants to be as far away from this case as possible.”
