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.

He said,

“The policemen who were guarding the man, released his handcuffs and put out the fire using water from a nearby tap.

 “He was sent to the hospital for treatment.” 
The man was said to have been drunk, however he wanted to lodge a police report. The policeman told him to calm down and to come back when he was sober. He got angry and raised his voice, while threatening to make the incident viral on Facebook.
The man then returned shortly and pushed the policeman and was promptly arrested, according to SAC Gan. He also added,
