Man accused of attempting to burn down a K.F. tavern

0628 Christopher BuckleyKlamath Falls, Ore. — A Klamath Falls man was arraigned Tuesday afternoon on charges including arson, and attempted assault.

Police say 46-year-old Christopher Dennis Buckley poured gasoline outside the Playhouse Tavern shortly after 8:30 Monday night, and set it on fire.

Buckley is also accused of trying to run over 3 people as he left the scene. Buckley faces charges from an incident that happened last Thursday, in which Buckley allegedly fired several shots in the Playhouse Tavern parking lot.

Investigators say Buckley told the owner as he was igniting the gasoline, “Think about this the next time before you talk to the district attorney.”
