CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – A South Carolina man is facing multiple charges, including with second-degree arson, after police say they believe he threw an explosive device at the apartment of a woman who recently broke up with him.

The State reports 32-year-old Devin Ross Spinelli was arrested Monday in Charleston.
 
Police officers responded to a call at the woman’s apartment. An incident report says they found evidence that something had burned outside underneath a window, and there was a smell of gasoline.
 
An officer who stopped Spinelli in his vehicle nearby says Spinelli was wearing medical gloves and had a lighter and a bottle of liquid that appeared to be gasoline.
 
The newspaper did not report whether Spinelli is represented by an attorney. His bond was set at $250,000.
