CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.–A man was arrested early Saturday after police say he tried to set fire to a Chambersburg bar after being kicked out by security.

Nicholas D. Parker-Wright, 29, of Chambersburg, is charged with arson, risking a catastrophe, recklessly endangering another person and criminal mischief. He was arraigned and taken to Franklin County Prison in lieu of $250,000 bail.

It happened at Dilly’s Bar and Restaurant located along the 600 block of Lincoln Way West.

No one was hurt. Investigators say the building sustained minor damage.

A preliminary hearing for Parker-Wright is scheduled for Sept. 20.
