Former Bowling Center Owner Going to Prison

10/20/11 – The owner of a former bowling center in Fond du Lac will spend seven years in prison for burning it down. 47-year-old Lyle Huss will also spend 15 years under extended supervision once he’s no longer behind bars. And he must pay over 350-thousand in restitution. Prosecutors said Huss started a fire at the Last Stop Lanes in March of last year because it was becoming a financial burden. He originally blamed the fire on people he removed from the bowling center who might have had a vendetta against him. But Huss later confessed to burning the place himself. It has since been razed. Huss struck a plea deal in July, in which he pleaded guilty to a single felony charge of arson. Fourteen other arson counts were dropped.
