Graysen Langille, who is retired, is being held on $100,000 bail at Orange County Jail, according to jail records. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Langille was arrested about 4:30 p.m. March 30 on suspicion of setting 10 small fires at numerous locations in Laguna Beach over a four-day period, Sgt. Darin Lenyi said.
