ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) - Howard County Police have arrested a man they say threw a Molotov cocktail at an Ellicott City tavern.

It happened about 1:20 a.m. Friday at The Diamondback Tavern. Police say a man drove up, threw the Molotov cocktail at the business and drove off.

Authorities say the device did not hit the building and tavern employees put the fire in the street out. Police say employees recognized the man who threw the device as a patron who had been thrown out for disorderly conduct about an hour earlier.

Police went to the patron’s home and arrested him.

Twenty-four-year-old Kenneth Norman Conway of Elkridge was charged with arson and other offenses.
