Policeman tases dude, sets his pants on fire.

A man Tasered by police is in hospital after the stun gun ignited a "flammable object" in his pants, burning him.

The incident is under review by Ontario's Special Investigations Unit, which probes all police-related deaths and serious injuries.

"Three officers went there in response to a disturbance call," said SIU spokesman Frank Phillips yesterday. "During the interaction, an officer discharged his Taser. A flammable object the man had in the waistband of his pants ignited." The man, 31, was burned on his hand and thigh. He was taken to Hamilton General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. » Article here
