Canadian Sets A Dozen Cars On Fire, Gets Tackled To The Ground By Bystanders

A bizarre scene unfolded in Edmonton on Friday when 22-year-old Malice Sutton set more than a dozen of different vehicles on fire.

As you can see in the video caught by a redditor, Sutton is making threatening gestures while holding a gas tank and what appears to be a lighter. Despite the apparent danger, a number of people attempt to defuse the situation.

Their efforts are unsuccessful as Sutton approaches a Ford Escape and then pours gasoline onto the hood. He then sets the crossover on fire and walks across the street.

As he begins to enter a nearby Starbucks, Sutton is chased down by two men including one with what appears to be a 2×4. The man in the Hawaiian shirt tackles him to the ground, while a couple uncomfortably continue drinking their coffee. More people soon arrive to help detain Sutton and he’s eventually taken into police custody.

Vice reports Sutton set multiple vehicles on fire that night and including several parked cars. This matches up with the police statement which said officers responded to calls informing them about a man traveling on foot and setting cars ablaze.

No one was injured during the incident, but Sutton faces a long list of charges including 11 counts of arson to the property of others (damage), four counts of possessing incendiary material, three counts of arson to property (disregard for human life) and one count of assault with a weapon.

    What this a protest against oil industry

    • ChrisInIL

      That and what this guy did are both signs of mental instabilities.

      • Paulbe

        Yep. Going with mental-health issues on this one.

  • TheBelltower

    Dude seated in the window at Starbucks… “Sweetie, let’s GTFOH.”


    • Craig

      Sadly.. probably only several months.

      • Ary Wisesa

        Just set his property on fire. Or even better, set HIM on fire. I’d be very happy watching him cries in agony.

        • Matt

          That might be a bit much… enjoying a young idiot being burned to death

        • Paulbe

          You’re just upset. Maybe you need to sit by a nice fire and sip some coffee.

  • brn

    Nice job guys. Took him down and calmly held him until the authorities could arrive. Starbucks lady seemed to handle it well also.

  • Ary Wisesa

    If I were the owner of the Escape, I would definitely crash my car onto and run him over. And I wouldn’t mind at all if he dies or suffers major injuries. One or two missing legs and/or arms from him would be just good enough.

  • paulgdeaton

    An ironic first name… “Malice”…

  • Mr. EP9

    Worthless hooligan. The hell is his problem?

  • GobbleUp

    Love the lady who just sips coffee instead of ANYTHING else.

    • Paulbe

      What else should she sip?


    Nice SUV driver reaction – o i’m on fire, but it’s nothfing, i’l just drive

    • McFly

      Driving through and out of the dangerous situation is often the rational choice.

      • KAG25

        exactly, was he suppose to stop

  • chumaxa .

    All these idiots with their phones, yes, our society is just fine.

    • KAG25

      He was throwing gas and fire on things, so you jump on him

  • Craig

    I wonder… if I decided to HIT him with my now on fire SUV – would I be charged?

    • ace_9

      You probably would, because people are stupid.

    • KAG25

      The red Escape he set on fire, if that ran him over would it be self defense?

      • Craig

        It should be. Will autonomous cars be allowed to defend themselves?

        • KAG25

          Goes back to that movie I, Robot. Because the car is a robot and it is protecting the passengers, can it kill that guy.

  • Khanaar

    Whyte ave in a nutshell

  • ace_9

    Why he did it?

    • Socarboy

      Because he’s an idiot…good for the bystanders that took action

      • ace_9

        Well, usually idiots have some kind of twisted reason that is 100% bulletproof for them. I would just like to know what were his motives for such a thing. Noone does that without any reason whatsoever.

  • Shobin Drogan

    Damn, i was hoping someone would’ve used a fire extinguisher on his face.

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    I hope that woman complains to Starbucks. You can see she was clearly put off her coffee.

  • Thunderbolt

    If it was me, I would try to grab him and put his face against the burning hood of the car.

    • brn

      Good thing you weren’t there.

      • gambit gamboa

        yeah cause youre the type of soyboy thatl let somebody rape your gf since your balls got cut. Feelsbadman.

        • brn

          Let me clarify. If the driver of the vehicle had chosen to drive over the subject, I would have been understanding. That person had reason to feel threatened and I can understand such an action. What Thunderbolt was suggesting is taking the law into his own hands.

          As for your argument, you only make yourself look bad.

  • robotlogic

    I would of bounced this guy off a few object before slamming him to the ground.
    Once you beat down these left-tard pusses they tend to stop being so brazen.

    • SemperMalvinas

      would have*

      • Day_Trader

        Totally with you. A few knock-outs to the chin, a broken nose and he’d remember it for the rest of his life. 🤝

  • SemperMalvinas

    He will be sorry!
