A Boone man, charged with arson in an incident from back in July, has been arrested, accused of intimidating witnesses in the ongoing case against him. Kevin Richard Pierson, 48, of Winter Drive in Boone, was arrested Thursday and charged with one felony count of intimidating a witness. Pierson was arrested in July of 2011 for first degree arson and burning a vehicle at the Mountain Villa Motor Lodge in Boone.  In this arrest, Pierson is alleged to have recently telephoned and threatened two potential witnesses in that earlier case. Pierson was taken before a Watauga County magistrate, then held under a $100,000 secured bond with a February 14th court date.
