TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A local man is charged with arson after he allegedly lit his underwear on fire at a West Tennessee Street Starbucks Tuesday afternoon.

Police say Randall S. Sullivan, 58, is charged with one count of arson after the incident in the coffee shop at the intersection of W. Tennessee and N. Copeland Streets.

Witnesses told police Sullivan went into the bathroom and remained in there for a long time.

Employees say after they could smell smoke, they checked on Sullivan as he was exiting the restroom, and found a burning pair of underwear on the floor. Another witness told police he walked into the restroom while Sullivan was in there and also saw feces on the floor.

Employees alerted officers who were already in the parking lot. Police say they found a lighter in Sullivan's pocket.

He was transported to the Leon County Jail.
