Before arrest, woman set apartment on fire

When officers responded to reports of a woman 'destroying' the inside of an apartment early Monday morning, she set the couch on fire.  
Officers responded to the complex at 7685 40th Street N. around 2:00 a.m.  They subdued the suspect, Barbie Ann Winstead, 44, and took her into custody.  
However, the fire spread quickly, and multiple apartment units suffered at least some smoke damage, making at least four apartments uninhabitable.
Winstead has been charged with arson and obstruction.
