Middletown Man Blamed for Burning Down Childhood Home of New York State Trooper as Payback!

Tyler Williams, a 26-year-old from Middletown, stands accused of committing a heinous act of arson by setting fire to the childhood home of a New York State trooper in Warwick. The incident, which unfolded on December 21, 2023, has shocked the local community and law enforcement agencies alike.

Williams’s alleged motive stems from a traffic stop encounter with the trooper on December 20, during which he was issued multiple traffic tickets. Seeking retribution, Williams purportedly embarked on a sinister quest for revenge, utilizing online resources to unearth personal details about the trooper and identify his childhood residence.

The subsequent arson attack, carried out on the trooper’s father’s home, resulted in the complete destruction of the property. Thankfully, no individuals were harmed physically, but the psychological impact on the trooper’s family and the broader community cannot be overstated.

NYS Troop Commander Michael Sumnick echoed these sentiments, condemning the targeting of law enforcement personnel for simply carrying out their duties. The arson case has ignited conversations about the safety and security of law enforcement officers and their families, prompting calls for enhanced protection and vigilance against potential threats.
