Tent Fire at Occupy Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A dispute over money was apparently behind an incident at the Occupy Nashville encampment near the state Capitol.
There were no injuries when someone threw gasoline onto the tent of an Occupy protester and set it on fire.
People who were taking part in the protest caught the suspect Thursday night and held him until police arrived, according to WTVF-TV.
The station reported the man accused of setting the fire complained a woman it belonged to has stolen money from him. The tent was destroyed.
It wasn’t clear whether the suspect was also a protester.
