According to court records, Hussein was arrested March 29, 2006, by Chicago
police after setting a fire in the middle of a Chicago
intersection, waving a Quran in the air and yelling "Allah[u] Akbar" -- Allah is great -- and other words. Hussein "created a standstill in the traffic and refused to comply" with police commands, Cullivan's affidavit says.
Hussein's attorney, public defender Robert J. Scherschlight, could not immediately be reached for comment.
