The Meadville Tribune
reports 54-year-old Michael Mondo was arrested at a hotel in Lebanon, Mo. on a warrant for allegedly trying to run over a man in Meadville and threatening to set a patio on fire.

Meadville is about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh.
The city paid about $175,000 to settle a lawsuit Mondo filed after he lost an eye when he was Tasered by a Meadville officer in August 2011.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Mondo and his wife, Margaret, have attorneys. They're both in the Laclede County Jail in Missouri.
