SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento County sheriff's officials say a 50-year-old parolee has been arrested after tossing a firebomb into a house.
A sheriff's statement says Billie Cooper is being held without bail Tuesday.
The statement says deputies received a tip that Cooper may try to burn down the house in Rio Linda, and as they were heading there the firebomb was tossed through the window and the house caught fire.
Several adults and a 3-year-old child were inside, but all got out safely.
The fire was quickly knocked down, and deputies found Cooper hiding in a creek bed minutes later.
A mug shot released by the Sheriff's Department shows Cooper with tattoos that cover much of his body, head and face, including one with the words "Hard 2 Love" across his upper lip.
