Molotov Cocktail Thrown In Springfield Attorney's Office

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Dec 21, 2013

A man from Springfield is charged with arson for throwing a Molotov cocktail in a local attorney's office.

Fire crews were called to the office of Van Pelt and Van Pelt this week after reports that Stephen DeLong went inside, lit the cocktail, and threw it against the wall.

Investigators say DeLong was not specifically targeting anyone at that office. But they say he has a history of violence and recently made threats against his father, who works next door.
