Holy crap, this man really does not want to be taken to jail.
A man whom was handcuffed for causing a drunken row at a police station in Ipoh managed to reach for his lighter and set himself on fire. He suffered up to 90% burns all over his body and is now fighting for his life at Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital, as reported by The Star.
Despite him being handcuffed, the 47 year old man, still managed to reach inside his pocket. Datuk Gan Tian Kee, Perak CID Chief Senior Asst Comm said that the man had caused a ruckus earlier at the police station and was detained at around 1am and 2am on Tuesday.
“The policemen who were guarding the man, released his handcuffs and put out the fire using water from a nearby tap.
“The man had a parang on his motorcycle. He also has a criminal record with 13 cases, including drug-related offences.”
The family of the 47 year old man are not happy with the police’s explanation and has filed a police report demanding an explaination over how he was burnt.
