Man accused of setting ex's car on fire and faking kidnapping

Ormond Beach police say Vincent Palmer III and his ex girlfriend were not getting along, arguing about their four children and visitation rights.

A judge on Monday denied bond for Palmer on arson charges. Ormond Beach Police say Palmer went to his ex's home, threw a brick through the window of her car, poured gasoline inside and started it on fire.   A note was clipped to the mailbox with the letters "KKK" and a racially offensive comment.

Police say it was Palmer’s attempt to make it look like a stranger burned the car.  But that’s not all. Police say Palmer faked his own abduction, even leaving a note and blood inside his girlfriend’s car.

Police found him in a few miles away.  They say he confessed to everything.
