(Reno, NV) — Reno police have arrested a man accused of pouring lighter fluid behind a 7-11 cashier’s counter and trying to ignite it by setting fire to some napkins.

Authorities say 41-year-old Randy Ybarra was arrested in the incident just after midnight Wednesday.

Officers say the man had been loitering outside the convenience store on Wells Avenue and had been asked to leave because of his bizarre behavior.

Police say Ybarra then grabbed a bottle of lighter fluid off the store shelf and poured some of it out before trying to set it on fire.

Ybarra is being held in the Washoe County jail on $20,000 bail.
