Catskill / Greene County Man Bursts into Flames From Taser

Non-Leathal tasers can set you on fire… under certain circumstances. In this case a former high school track and baseball star from Catskill entered the Main Street Catskill police station, reportedly intoxicated, and got into a scuffle with police officers, but not before he “reportedly doused himself” with hand sanitizer. They used a non-lethal taser or stun gun on him and he burst into flames. He is being treated at Albany Medical Center for severe burns.

I have heard of this before when sunscreen caused a man to burst into flames from a taser or stun gun.
