D.C. police arrested a man suspected of throwing a fire bomb as a protest from atop his van stopped on a busy downtown Washington street Tuesday.

The man stopped his van in the intersection of 17th and K streets northwest about 2 p.m. on Tuesday, then climbed up on the roof, police spokesman Kevin Palmer said. The man unfurled a banner and threw a Molotov cocktail to the ground.

The man stood on a van holding a sign reading "Justice" with a sign reading "My $200 million" on the side of the van.

After a time, officers persuaded the man to come down. Police spokeswoman Officer Helen Andrews said Kyung Song Kil was arrested and charged with possession of a Molotov cocktail, a felony charge. She did not have details on Kil's hometown or age.
