Man sets fire to bank after waiting too long to withdraw money

November 18, 2016
Springvale, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Nur Islam, tired of waiting in line to withdraw money from his account, leaves a bank to buy petrol from a nearby station, pours some from the ATM outside to the entrance and ignites it, causing burns over 60% of his body

Islam was able to recover from his burns after 4 months in the hospital. He faces 108 charges including arson, property damage, and intentionally charging injury. He has pleaded not guilty to 33 of the charges, claiming he did not intend to harm anyone other than himself.

A video of the incident can be seen here.
