GREELEY, Colo. -- A Colorado man faces arson charges after police say he spat flaming streams of lighter fluid at two other men.

James Pachokas told officers he spits fire for money, but witnesses told police that he used a lighter to ignite the fluid as he spat it toward two other men last month.

According to the Greeley Tribune ( HTTP://TINYURL.COM/CMH3VPF ), Zachary Flowers told police Pachokas spat the flaming fluid 20 to 25 times and the flames came close to his head. No injuries or damage were reported, however.

Pachokas is charged with two counts of arson and two counts of reckless endangerment. He was being held Thursday at the Weld County jail. It wasn't clear whether he had an attorney.

His next court date is Dec. 21.
