NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police have arrested a man after his ex-wife says he tried to set her on fire last weekend.

Michael Norman is charged with aggravated assault in the alleged incident that began, his ex-wife told police, when Norman started screaming at her at a neighbor's home Saturday morning.

Police said Norman left the house and retrieved a jar containing some type of liquid out of his truck.

The woman claims Norman then returned, threw the liquid onto her and said he was going to burn her.

Police believe the man wasn't able to get his lighter to spark, so he left.
