Police: Man threw Molotov cocktails in ex-girlfriend’s home
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – A man has been arrested after being accused of throwing Molotov cocktails into his ex-girlfriend’s Memphis home, causing a fire.
Police tell WMC-TV that David McShan was taken into custody and charged with aggravated arson after firefighters responded to a house fire early Sunday morning.
Investigators say a Molotov cocktail sparked the blaze.
Police say officers had been called to the residence earlier that night for domestic violence and vandalism reports. A woman said the suspect, who is her ex-boyfriend, had been constantly harassing her at home.
The victim also said she saw the suspect throw several Molotov cocktails through her bedroom walls.
It’s unclear if McShan has an attorney to comment on the charge.
