The fire was extinguished quickly and did not cause much damage.

Quoting a sheriff, the Palm Beach Post reported the store's owners are not Muslim, and are of Indian descent.

Police said Richard Lloyd set a fire in dumpster and rolled it to the front doors of the store.

According to WPTV, deputies said that Lloyd told them his plan was to get a big enough fire in the dumpster to catch the building on fire, and once it was burning he thought the alcohol from the beer and wine inside would burn it to the ground. He was charged with first-degree arson and is being held on $30,000 bail, authorities said. Lloyd told investigators he planned to burn the building because he "was doing his part for America".

Intel Acquiring Mobileye For Autonomous Driving Technology
Last summer, BMW announced it would work with Intel and Mobileye to bring self-driving cars to mass production by 2021. The move comes as Intel ramps up investment in the automotive industry to become a leader in self-driving technology.

When the man, identified as 64-year-old Richard Lloyd, saw deputies he allegedly put his hands up and said, "take me away". "Regardless, we will not tolerate violence based on age, race, color, ancestry, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, homeless status, mental or physical disability".

Through an official press release, the Florida Police Department stated that specialists would evaluate the mental condition of Mr. Lloyd.

Lloyd had reportedly tried to buy a bottle of Tropicana juice at the same store just days earlier, but was informed that they did not have any. The prime reason that he stated was that he believed them to be of Middle-Eastern descent and of the Muslim faith. The state attorney's office will look into whether the Friday fire should be investigated as an intentional hate crime.

In late February, an Indian engineer working in Kansas was killedand two other people were wounded after a gunman shouting racial slurs opened fire on them. The victim survived the incident and told police that the suspect - described as a tall, white man wearing a mask - told him to "go back to your own country" before shooting, the Seattle Times reports.
