Man Severely Burned After Being Tasered In Weed

WEED, Calif. (AP) – Authorities and family members say a man who had doused himself in a flammable liquid caught fire and was severely burned when a police officer fired a stun gun at him in the Siskiyou County town of Weed. 47-year-old Paul Jason Hall is fighting for his life with burns covering 70% of his body. His relatives say he has a history of mental illness. The police officer also suffered burns during the confrontation Saturday. The officer was not identified and his condition was unknown. Siskiyou County authorities are investigating the incident, which began when the officer responded to reports of a suicidal man attempting to light himself on fire. Police in Weed declined comment because of the ongoing investigation.
