16 year-old arrested after leaving makeshift Molotov cocktail on home's front porch

SPOKANE, Wash- A 16 year-old boy is under arrest after a two-hour criminal spree Monday night into Tuesday morning. It all started at 3158 East 36th Avenue at around midnight. That's where police and fire officials were called after someone left a rag soaked in oil burning on the front porch of a home. 

According to a firefighter at the scene, a passerby saw the burning rag on the front porch, got out of his vehicle and pounded on the front door before grabbing a hose and extinguishing the fire. By the time police and fire officials arrived, it was pretty much over with—or at least they thought so. 

About an hour later they were called to Ferris High School where witnesses reported seeing a boy smashing the windshields of several vehicles. When they arrived the boy tried to run from them but they gave chase and were able to quickly apprehend him. 

He later confessed to putting the burning rag on the front porch and said he was upset with someone who lives in the home, but did not go into further detail. 

Here are the charges that boy is facing:

  • Reckless Burning in the 2nd degree, a gross misdemeanor
  • Two counts of Malicious Mischief stemming from the car windshields
  • Obstructing because of his attempt to elude officers

    OMAK, Wash. - I can picture the Austin Powers bit now.  The people of Omak looking up at the sky and seeing a giant (Fill in the blank innuendo here) just like in 1999's Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. If you're unfamiliar, I'll save you a Google search.  A simple, yet effectively funny joke.  Except the U.S. Navy doesn't see humor in the real-life version at all.
