AKRON, OH (WOIO) -The Akron Fire Department says that a 69-year-old man set himself on fire Saturday after yelling about the election results in a local coffee shop.
The department says the man, who was dressed in a U.S. Marine Corps uniform, walked into Angel Falls Coffee on South Highland Ave. yelling about the recent protests over the election results.
He then left the coffee shop and approached a passerby and handed the passerby his cellphone and asked him to video record him, according to the police report.
Police said the man grabbed a can of gasoline from his car and set himself on fire. A witness in a nearby business ran out and extinguished the flames.I suppose he could have been a Trump supporter, but that seems unlikely.
