Wichita Police have arrested a man for arson after they say he tried to set a bar on fire where patrons had laughed at him.

Late Sunday night, a man got into a fight at BC's Bar and Grill, located at 4423 S. Broadway. Police say the man was punched in the face and that several patrons laughed at him.

The man left the bar but returned shortly after midnight this morning, with the intention to set the building on fire, according to police. A passerby saw the man using a torch to set a fence behind the bar on fire, and flagged down a police officer.

The officer located the 43-year-old man, with the torch in his hand, and arrested him for arson. The fence fire was extinguished and never spread to the building. There were two people inside the bar at the time.
