Man bursts into FLAMES after being 'tasered by security guard’.


Shocking footage shows a man catch fire after being tasered during a row with two security guards. The dramatic clip shows his trousers suddenly burst into flames after the device was fired at him.

One security guard was filmed scuffling with the man on the ground before his colleague fired the taser. The man appeared to be walking away when it happened. It is not clear what sparked the dispute. The fire burned out after a couple of seconds. Footage of the incident, believed to be in Philadelphia, was posted on Twitter by passerby Pat Tacheny.
He wrote: "So I witnessed a man catch on fire after being tased last night."It happened outside a branch of Jim's Steaks, although it is not clear who the security guards worked for. In a statement, Ken Silver, the restaurant president, told Philly.com: "We are and will continue to cooperate fully with the Philadelphia Police Department as needed."We take the safety of our customers and employees very seriously and work dutifully to safeguard their well-being."In doing so we will continue operating with the highest standards as a local merchant, employer and neighbour.
