I would guess that rule number one of fire bombing a car is don't stand directly over your molotov cocktail. But hey, what do I know? I'm not an expert in this kind of thing.
This act of vandalism against a Cadillac XTS (hasn't it suffered enough already?) happened outside a Houston residence on Monday.
The Cadillac's owner told local Click 2 Houston news that the guy in this surveillance video is trying to shake him down for money. The owner claims he knows who the guy is.
The police, Major Offenders' "swindle squad," and the Fire Department's arson bureau are still looking for the vandal, so, I guess if you know someone dumb enough to stand over a lit molotov cocktail, just send them straight to the Houston PD.
