The Sheriff says Wood will also face code violations for dangerous use of electricity where it could have started fires.  The investigation is still ongoing. Woods was booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility last evening on 10 felony charges.  Bail was set at $150 thousand dollars and Woods has already bailed out of jail.
