A heated Florida man was arrested after he reportedly spent hundreds of dollars to get his car out of an impound lot and then tossed Molotov cocktails at it.

Ayub Mule Abdulrahman, 27, went to the Almake Auto Shop in Orange County on Saturday before allegedly firebombing his Nissan Altima, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

"He came back and started throwing gas cocktail bombs over the fence on his own car," car lot owner Darnell Adams said, according to local outlet WFTV.

Adams said he was in the process of bringing the keys to hand over to Abdulrahman when surveillance cameras filmed him hurling the homemade explosives.

“Everything is on camera and I showed it to the cops,” Adams said, according to WFTV. “I mean it's just clear as day, throwing like three, four, five gas bombs over the fence.”

Adams said the blaze was extinguished before the Orange County Fire Rescue arrived on the scene, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

“What if he would've came back later and tried to finish the job and all my cars catch on fire?” Adams said, according to WFTV.

Nobody was injured in the incident, according to reports.

“Twenty minutes. If he had waited 20 minutes, he would've been able to drive away in his car,” Adams said.

Abdulrahman  was charged with arson and manufacturing and transporting a firebomb, according to online police records. Deputies said the State Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the incident, WFTV reports.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer, The Associated Press reports.
