TERRE HAUTE — A Terre Haute man faces multiple charges after allegedly battering his girlfriend and threatening to set a house on fire.

Osborn has been charged with attempted arson, a class-B felony, for allegedly pouring gasoline around the perimeter of a dwelling on March 21. He is charged with intimidation, a class-D felony, for allegedly threatening to set the residence on fire unless his girlfriend came out of the house.

Osborn is charged with criminal mischief, a class-A misdemeanor, for allegedly damaging a wall and window of the property, and he is charged with domestic battery, a class-A misdemeanor, for allegedly battering his girlfriend.

Osborn is scheduled to return to court April 10 for a hearing with his public defender.
