Woman Arrested for Throwing Molotov Cocktail at Anti-Abortion Protesters


A Texas woman was arrested by police and charged with aggravated assault after she threw a Molotov cocktail at a group of people outside a Planned Parenthood facility.

The group was made up of anti-abortion protesters who held a prayer vigil outside the Planned Parenthood building in South Austin. Ruth Allwein said that as she prayed on Monday, she saw someone throw the Molotov cocktail from her car and backed away.

She put out the fire and called the police. They ended up finding and arresting Melanie Toney, who ended up confessing to throwing the Molotov cocktail.
