McKinney police officers arrested a man who allegedly committed arson and danced near the fire afterwards.
Authorities responded to a call for assistance from McKinney Fire Department and were dispatched to a car wash located in the 700 block of North McDonald St. on Wednesday morning. An incident report obtained by Star Local Media noted that the suspect, identified as 41-year-old Nathaniel Walker III of Dallas, was spotted by a witness burning a trash can. The witness also said he heard glass break.
The incident report said that Walker was “becoming hostile with firefighters while they were attempting to extinguish” the flames, it also notes that he was taken into custody without incident.
