A frustrated customer-turned-arsonist found themselves in a world of trouble after attempting to burn down a New York eatery for reportedly getting their order wrong.
In a "Crime of the Week" recap for the Reelz police ride-along series On Patrol: Live, Deputy Curtis Wilson reveals details of the shocking crime caught on the restaurant's outdoor security cameras.
The footage shows a man seemingly innocently standing just outside of an Indian restaurant in Queens, New York, when he suddenly grabs a bucket and douses the front of the establishment with gasoline.
First attempting to strike a match and failing, he leans down over the gas to try and light another match directly into the puddle when both the gasoline and the man go up in a shocking burst of flames.
Fortunately, only his shoes seem to catch fire, but the storefront is quickly engulfed as the man frantically runs away from the inferno.
And while a good Samaritan rushes to the blaze to try to put it out with what remains of a can of beer, the fire is unaffected, bursting the restaurant's windows and melting the air conditioning unit.
