A Clearwater woman was arrested in a bathroom at Tropicana Field Friday after police said she tried to start a paper towel holder on fire.

Lisa D. Walker, 50, was arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and possession of marijuana.

The Rays were playing the Toronto Blue Jays Friday night. During the third inning, Walker went into the women's bathroom and "attempted to set fire to the paper towel holder using a lighter," St. Petersburg police wrote in an arrest report.

Police said there was no permanent damage. Police noted Walker appeared to be intoxicated. They also reported finding a small amount of marijuana in her possession.
