LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A University of Kentucky freshman has been charged with arson after an overturned car caught fire in the wake of the Wildcats' Final Four win over Louisville on Saturday.

University officials identified Daebrion T. Hopwood of Elizabethtown as the person arrested Thursday. Lexington Fire Battalion Chief Ed Davis told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/HsyGBm ) that at least two more people thought to be involved.

According to court documents, Hopwood was recorded on video putting lighter fluid on a sweat shirt, "which was then ignited and thrown into the overturned vehicle."

Hopwood was booked into the Fayette County Detention Center on a $2,500 bond.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Hopwood.
