Half-headed man faces attempted murder charges

A man made famous for a mug shot showing his deformed skull has been arrested again.  Carlos Rodriguez has been charged with arson and attempted murder after setting his mattress on fire.

According to a police report, Rodriguez, 31, set his mattress on fire at his home.  There were two other people, including his mother, inside the duplex.

Rodriguez was jailed on $20,000 bond.  He was due back in court on Wednesday.

Rodriguez became famous after his 2010  arrest for allegedly soliciting a prostitute.

In a YouTube video that surfaced a few years ago, Rodriguez claimed he lost a large portion of his brain and skull in a drug-related car crash in which he flew through his windshield and landed head-first on the road.
