Vandal Sets Himself on Fire

HOUSTON (KPRC) - A Houston, Texas man claims a "shakedown" for money is behind a series of threats that culminated with a Molotov cocktail being used to heavily damage his car.

Surveillance cameras at the home captured the entire incident.

On the video a shadowy figure is seen approaching a Cadillac. The man is then seen lighting what appears to be a homemade fire bomb.

The man's plan hits a snag when he is seen throwing a brick against the window several times before it shatters. The video then shows the man stepping on his own fire bomb as he tries to clear away the rest of the glass from the window. The man is then seen running away with his foot on fire. The flames then spread to the car and caused heavy damage.

The owner of the Cadillac spoke under the condition we not reveal his identity. He said he believes he knows exactly who is behind this act of vandalism.
