Atlanta was in the news all last week after a portion of I-85 collapsed on Thursday (March 30) and the man accused of  setting the fire that destroyed part of the interstate talked with companions about smoking crack cocaine before the blaze started, according to a document released Saturday.

The AJC reported:

“The fire collapsed a well-traveled stretch of I-85 — triggering millions of dollars in damage and wreaking havoc on traffic, potentially for months, as the state rebuilds the wrecked section.

Basil Eleby, 39, was charged on Saturday with first-degree arson in connection with the fire. Wearing a navy jumpsuit, flip-flops and handcuffs, Eleby reluctantly shuffled into a courtroom at the Fulton County jail for his first appearance hearing Saturday morning.

Judge James Altman announced the arson charge, which was added on top of an earlier felony charge of criminal damage to property, and set bond at $200,000.”

April 1, 2017, Atlanta, Georgia – Basil Eleby is escorted by his public defender and two Fulton County Sheriff’s office officers into the court room of presiding Judge James Altman at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia, on April 1, 2017. Eleby received two charges of $100,000 each amounting to total bail of $200,000 for Criminal Damage 1st Degree and Arson 1st Degree after setting a fire underneath a bridge on I-85 NB that would eventually cause a section of the bridge on I-85 to be closed off indefinitely.

That was a lot of damage done by an alleged crack user and The King of The South and ATL ambassador T.I. seems to call a flag on the arrest and makes you question if the guy was a scape goat. T.I. commented on Instagram,
