A manís clothes burst into flames on South Street early Saturday after a security guard stunned him with a Taser-style device.

I'm going to guess that some secondary factor is at play here. You could fire a taser into a pile of fluffy, linty cotton rags ten thousand times without starting a fire.

Possibly shorting across a metallic surface that went white-hot.

I think maybe the clothes are coated in something or maybe he lotioned himself with coconut oil or something. Or maybe he had something in his pocket that exploded when he was tazed. ???

This was outside a steakhouse. Maybe he spilled a drink on himself.

that's an inherent risk of wearing gasoline infused clothing

He could have been passing gas just as the taser hit.

I would suggest there was some type of flammable substance on his clothing.



My buddy used to have this fleece type sweater that you could set on fire. Not a big fire like in the video but it would go in a wave across the whole thing if you let it. We used to set him on fire all the time, usually wait until he drank a six pack or two.
