Ore. couple denied pizza try to firebomb shop

EUGENE, Ore. — Police in Eugene, Ore., say a man and a woman refused service at a pizza shop because they were intoxicated came back later and tried to set the shop on fire as employees huddled in the basement.
Frightened employees at Whirled Pies had called 911 late Monday night when the man and woman returned and the man started pounding on the front door, which employees had locked.
Police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin says that before officers arrived, the man broke the glass in the front door and the pair came in. By that time employees had moved to the basement. McLaughlin says the man and woman used a window curtain as a wick to light some homemade “moonshine” they were carrying, then tossed the blazing liquid into the business.
Police arrested Matthew Bossard, 32, and Leticia Kagele, 36, for investigation of arson and burglary.
