The homeless man accused of tossing a bag of Molotov cocktails at state Sen. Wendy Davis' office door is a college graduate and one-time middle school teacher who "snapped" some 15 years ago, his older brother said Wednesday.

"All the way through college, we used to be like best friends," said Curtis Steele III of his brother Cedric, 40, who was in custody Wednesday facing a charge of arson of a building.

"Then he just mentally snapped and just wasn't mentally there. ... Unfortunately it's gotten worse. His whole reality is different."

Davis was not at the Fort Worth office during the attack Tuesday afternoon, and no one was injured.

Curtis Steele, 42, of Grand Blanc, Mich., said his brother believes that he develops weapons for the Pentagon, writes children's books and is, at times, a preacher.
