Man jailed on charge he firebombed western Pa. bar

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges he tossed a homemade firebomb at a bar, after he was kicked out following an argument with his girlfriend.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 47-year-old Daniel Crowe, of Green Tree, who remained jailed Monday pending a preliminary hearing July 11 on arson and related charges in the incident about 2 a.m. Saturday.

Allegheny County police say Crowe was thrown out of Manny’s Rook Station Cafe in Carnegie just before closing then returned and threw a Molotov cocktail which caught the tavern’s door and a customer’s car on fire.

Nobody was hurt in the fire, which was quickly extinguished.

Police say they charged Crowe after finding an open bottle of tiki torch fluid on his front porch, the same fuel allegedly used in the firebomb.
