Police get a shock when new Taser briefly ignites suspect
It didn't take Lancaster police long to discover a potential danger with their newly issued stun guns: They can set their targets on fire.
One day after officers received Tasers this week, two of them were patting out the flames on Daniel Wood, a 31-year-old homeless man who reportedly had been inhaling a chemical from a spray can to get high. Wood was not seriously injured but was taken to a hospital as a precaution, said Lancaster Police Chief David Bailey.
