36 year old Ronald Mitchell of Australia has discovered yet another drawback of a gasoline sniffing habit.
When police were called to arrest Mr. Mitchell, rather than go quietly, he decided to run toward officers with a lighter and a container of gasoline in his hands. Police ordered him to stop. He kept coming. A quick thinking officer decided that the use of immediate deadly force wasn't necessary...so he pulled out his taser and gave Mr. Mitchell a good old fashioned taze.
Can you guess the result?
That's right, Mr. Sniffer burst into flames on the spot.
The quick thinking officer put out the flames with his hands. Mr. Mitchell is currently residing in a Perth hospital in critical condition with 3rd degree burns over 10 percent of his body. He is charged with assault to prevent arrest and possession of a sniffing substance.
On a side note, and 18-year-old woman at the residence decided to throw rocks at the officer as he put out the flames on Mr. Mitchell, causing minor injury. The woman was charged with two counts of assaulting an officer. The officer was treated for a cut to the head, via the rocks, and burns to the hands(self explanatory). Two other people at the house were charged with possession of a sniffing substance.
The officer was not suspended.
