A 29-year-old drifter is facing an arson charge after police say he set fire to patio furniture at a downtown restaurant.

Officers say the general manager of The Mule on King William Street received a call on the night of April 25 about a fire outside the restaurant on the patio.

Security footage showed a man pouring fluids onto a wooden serving table and setting a wall planter ablaze. Police say the cameras then show the man walking southbound on Hughson Street North toward King William Street.

A delivery driver passing by the area saw the fire and used water to extinguish the flames, which caused minor damage.

A 25-year-old man has been charged
