A 21-year-old Duluth man was arrested Tuesday night for throwing Molotov cocktails from the roof of a liquor store, according to police.

Public Information Officer Jim Hansen said it happened at the Shanty Bottle Shop on the 1200 block of East 4th Street around 11 p.m.

Hansen told Eyewitness News the man only threw the devices when there was no one, and no traffic around because he didn't want to hurt anyone.

Hansen said the man is being held at the St. Louis County Jail and is expected to be formally charged Thursday.
