Car shopping can get frustrating. It must have really irritated a shopper so much that Bryan fire marshals say a 19-year old lit a car on fire.

Freddy Hernandez was taken to the Brazos County Jail after authorities believe he set a 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage on fire. The owner told investigators Hernandez had wanted to buy the car but then backed out because he did not want to pay for the title.

Fire marshals say surveillance video caught Hernandez pouring a gallon of bleach on the car and setting it ablaze.

His getaway vehicle was in a traffic accident later that day with the empty bleach bottle inside.
