November 15th, 2011 6:14 am by Staff Report

NASHVILLE (AP) — Nashville police say a man apparently upset over his pizza threw a beer bottle with flammable liquid into the restaurant.

Officers said in a news release Monday that it ignited a small fire Sunday night that was quickly extinguished by employees.

Police said three employees chased 28-year-old Jacob James Winston a few blocks and subdued him until officers arrived. He was injured in the scuffle and taken to a hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

Police said he would face aggravated arson and other charges in the case after his release. They said he has 32 prior arrests since 2006 on various charges.
