Yesterday, police arrested a woman who allegedly set a car on fire at a Jerusalem gas station after she was reportedly refused a cigarette. Security footage from the station shows the woman talking to a man pumping gas. After apparently asking him a question—several Israeli news outlets report she asked for a cigarette—she walks away, pauses, and walks back to set the man’s car ablaze.

Israel National News and The Marker report a suspect was arrested shortly after setting the fire, though she’s reportedly denied any wrongdoing; the News says she’s due to be arraigned sometime Wednesday.
