RALEIGH, N.C. — A homeless man was charged Tuesday with throwing a Molotov cocktail at a Raleigh police officer's SUV, according to an arrest warrant.

Anthony R. Harris, 48, whose address is listed as "streets of Raleigh," was charged with possessing a weapon of mass destruction and injury to personal property. He was being held in the Wake County jail under a $10,000 bond.

Investigators said Harris threw a container of flammable liquid at a Chevrolet Blazer parked at the Greyhound bus station in downtown Raleigh. It was unclear if the SUV was the officer's personal vehicle or a patrol car.

The container didn't explode, according to the warrant.
