A Maine man accidentally started a wildfire Thursday when he fell and lost his joint while mowing a field. The man was smoking a joint while mowing a field with a battery-powered lawnmower, according to a Maine Forest Service report. At some point, the man fell down, and lost the joint. “He then walked back up to his house and then turned and noticed the field was on fire,” according to the forest service. Two acres burned in the fire. Additional information about the fire wasn’t immediately available. That fire came as forest rangers contended with “red flag” conditions, with temperatures reaching up into the 80s and winds gusting up to 25 mph increasing the risk of wildfires across the western mountains, the foothills, northern and Down East Maine.

A former biotech executive pleaded guilty to a federal charge and admitted paying $50,000 to Georgetown University's former tennis coach to get his daughter admitted to the prestigious school. Robert Repella, a 61-year-old resident of Ambler, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud during a video conference held by U.S. District Court Judge Allison Burroughs in Boston. Repella's offense is not part of the conspiracy led by “Operative Varsity Blues” mastermind Rick Singer, prosecutors said, though federal agents stumbled onto the Pennsylvania man during the probe that rocked higher education last year. Former Georgetown men's and women's tennis coach Gordon Ernst, who's accused of pocketing $2.7 million in bribes, has pleaded not guilty to a host charges connected to the alleged "Varsity Blues" conspiracy. Judge Burroughs set Repella's sentencing for Sept. 23rd. (https://nbcnews.to/2TXoWuO)
