If you feel a burning sensation when you pee, start pointing fingers at James Crittenden.

A Kentucky man is under fire after he lit a gas station toilet ablaze, allegedly for "religious reasons," according to WDRB.

James Crittenden, 36, walked into a Louisville gas station just after 10 a.m. on Saturday and headed for the bathroom. Workers at the store soon found Crittenden wasn't using their facilities for their usual function, but had instead lit the toilet seat on fire.

When they confronted him, he reportedly told them he did it for his religion, the Courier-Journal reported.

He was also apparently boozed up, and was charged with public intoxication, along with first-degree arson and terroristic threatening.

Crittenden has met the Louisville police before.

He was arrested on July 25 after cops said he was huffing cans of Reddi-wip inside a ValuMarket, WAVE News reported. He'd already been banned from the store in the past for disorderly conduct.

He allegedly told workers that he was huffing the 10 cans to wake up, and that the U.S. Constitution allowed him the authority to huff Reddi-wip.
